Traffic regulation post-Diwali in every StateDiwali is one festival that is a hugely pan-India festival. Though it is celebrated over a period of two or three days on specific dates, by each State, the number of holidays that normally one gets or takes to celebrate this important Hindu festival is at least three, if not higher.
Hundreds of thousands of people moving out of huge metros, is a big challenge not only for the people concerned, but for the general public as well. It is this connection that the traffic arrangements made in Chennai, were quite good. There were separate boarding points and the local buses that ply to these boarding points made it easier for the people to move out of the city.
What arrangements were made in other metros like Bangalore and Hyderabad? In fact, such arrangements should be made for every Indian festival, so that the people do not suffer.
Members may please highlight special arrangements for buses in their own States, in this regard.
