Siliguri, 09th December: Private buses are often spotted painted exactly in the style of North Bengal State Transport Corporation (NBSTC) buses to attract passengers. However, to maintain some small changes to dodge any confrontations, ‘NBSCT’ or ‘NSTC’ is written instead of the original abbreviation i.e. NBSTC.
Although private bus owners have been warned about the issue several times earlier, the problem has not yet been resolved.
NBSTC Chairman Parthapratim Roy said that the matter has been brought to the notice of the district magistrates and the bus owners must change the vehicle colours during the renewal of permits.
