Private buses in Belagavi, since the past 10 odd years or so had started pick up points in various parts of the city, especially Tilakwadi, Angol areas.
Now the traffic police have stopped the same as they these buses are causing traffic problems as they are parked on the road and that disturbs the traffic. A similar attempt was done in 2008 and 2010 as well.
The police for this have booked 2 private bus operators for breaking this rule. The police have asked the buses to start only form ONE POINT and that there should be no pick up points in the city. Many travelers complained that by enforcing this would be very difficult for them, as they would have to take an auto and auto charges Rs.100 from Angol to Ramdev or may be even more.
Now you tell me friends when have you complained about the excess fare being charged to the police and when have the police responded to it.
So be prepared to shell more money for the auto to reach Ramdev to catch your bus.
The police must enforce the Meter rule for the autos and then implement such rules. But who will bell the cat?
This is again an act which shows the inability of the authorities to implement one rule strictly which will benefit so many people. Autos must run by meter and if the police cant implement that then they have no moral right to implement this rule as well, we guess.
