After the warning letter that was sent by the transport department of Delhi to seven states across the country including Uttarakhand, the Uttarakhand Transport Corporation (UTC) has sent a proposal to the Delhi transport department. According to official sources, if in the given warning time period Uttarakhand administration fails to sign Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two states, the Uttarakhand roadways buses will not be able to enter the borders of Delhi.
The General Manager (operation and technical) of UTC, Deepak Jain said, “We sent a representative from our Delhi office with a proposal to the transport department there, and now we are waiting for their answer. Earlier also a similar proposal was sent to them.”
General secretary of Uttaranchal Roadways Employees Union Ashok Chaudhary said, “Earlier we submitted a proposal to the State Transport Authority of Uttarakhand, stating in detail about the number of buses going to and from Delhi. The proposal might not have been forwarded further.”
It is pertinent to mention here that New Delhi on Saturday issued a warning letter to Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Jammu & Kashmir, stating that these states will first have to sign an MoU with them unless the roadways buses from these states will prohibited from entering inside the borders of Delhi. If this gets implemented Uttarakhand Roadways buses will only be able to access Anand Vihar bus terminal in Delhi. Nearly 20 to 25 thousand passengers daily will get directly affected by this decision.
