IT hub autos truncate path to reap revenue, Auto Information, DFL
It’s troublesome to cease truncation of the route as a result of the origin and vacation spot are below two totally different enforcement zones. Ultadanga falls below Kolkata Police’s jurisdiction, whereas Karunamoyee and SDF come below the Bidhannagar Police Commissionerate. Until there’s a seamless coordination between the 2 forces, curbing the follow is almost not possible.
For Gautam Ghosh Dastidar, truncation of routes meant sheer wastage of time. “You manage to get an auto at Ultadanga after much struggle and wait. Then you spend at least 10-15 minutes at Karunamoyee for a Sector V-bound auto. It makes no sense, but I had no other option,” he added. Although the fare is Rs 25, Gautam ended up paying Rs 45 on Wednesday.
“The problem can be resolved, Sector V is recognized as a hub. Sector V cannot be equated with the rest of Salt Lake. But all transportation planning so far has been made assuming Sector V to be an integral part of Salt Lake,” knowledge scientist and transportation skilled Soumitra Bose of Ideation Expertise, a know-how associate of West Bengal Transport Company Bose mentioned all buses attain Sector V by way of the remainder of Salt Lake. For this reason IT agency workers desire autodespite the issues.Auto operators claimed unhealthy roads on the IT hub have additionally raised the upkeep value of autos. “We are now paying almost triple of what we used to during winter. This is why we needed to raise the fare. We keep ferrying them at odd hours, even at midnight,” Gauranga Das, an operator of Hudco-SDF route mentioned.
