    Traffic regulation post-Diwali in every State

    Diwali 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.

    APSRTC and TSRTC are very much known for these arrangements. They run many special buses to all the important places from all important places. As the festival comes near the traffic going out of the city will increase. The traffic in the city will be reduced on the day of the festival. So accordingly more arrangements will be made by the RTC. At the same time, private buses also will be increased. Both the RTC and private buses will charge more as the festival comes near. The south central railways also run some special trains. This gives them a very good revenue generator for both RTC and railway. The buses will start from various locations in the city so the people need not travel to long distances within the city to reach their district bus. If somebody has to go to the central bus station they can travel by city buses free of cost two hours before the scheduled departure of their bus.
    always confident
