Today i.e 29/12/2008 i reached bangalore at early morning 4:30, and very much glad to see that bus service was still available at that time.
I took bus to sreenivas nagar Bus No 45, KA-01-F-1451, The bus was almost full and i was in the last seat. By the time when the bus reached Chamrahpet circle conductore came to me for ticket, till than no passengers had get down from the bus.
I gave him 20/- for two tickets which costs me 10/- per ticket, but the conductore returned the change of 5/- and i was surprised, for a while i thought is it a new year offer, but it was not so, he told 15/- he charged for without ticket that means that amount is for his pocket, he has did the same for all, he gave the ticket only on demand other wise no ticket.
On an estimation approximately 40 were travelling in that bus
If minimum charge on 40 is 10/- ( With ticket) and he has charged 7/-(with out ticket)it means 7X40 i.e 280/- per trip is for his account. which is non account to BMTC.
This is not the first time it had happend to me but this for the first time i am writing tio you.
Who will take care of this
Please save innocent peoples,
Please reduce corruption.
Please be a part of Development,
Please be a part of construction, not destruction.
