Since the last 12 months, 42 buses of the Kadamba Transport Corporation Limited (KTC) are lying unused. The minister for transport, Mauvin Godinho, revealed that the buses may be auctioned off or scrapped. The Panaji depot has 9 unused buses while the Porvorim depot has 5 unused buses. The Vasco depot has 1 unused bus. Additionally, 9 buses are just collecting dust at the central KTC workshop.
Looking at the model number of these buses, one can deduce that they were manufactured around ten years ago, mostly between the years 2011 and 2013. Four of them were made between 2015 and 2016. The oldest buses were assembled in 2003 and 2004.
The buses from the KTC central workshop and Porvorim depot may be either auctioned or scrapped. The other buses have been given a period of one month to six months to be repaired. “The commencement timelines to auction these vehicles will be taken after a resolution is passed by the board,” Godinho said.
