I agree with you Lakshmanan, I was infact got insulted along with not receving the right change.
I have filed a complaint against this conductor at MTCbus.org
I look forward to getting this complaint addressed
Sir / Madam,
I am from chennai and i would like to complaint about the ticket fares in MTC
buses. Here in chennai the local transport corporation MTC
plying buses for public convenience, there are many services lie WHITE
Board - which has the least ticket fare(Min. Rs.2/-) then M series
in WHITE Board buses here they add Rs.1/- extra from normal White board
next comes the Yellow board(LSS) then comes GREEN board(EXPRESS) then
comes DLUXE and the last is the A/C(VOLVO). Among these the LSS,
EXPRESS and DELUXE buses have some ticket fares like
Rs.3.50/-,Rs.4.50/-... here most of the conductors are refunding the
change of .50/- paise. By this the conductors are gaining nearly aound
Rs.5000/- a month, let we have a simple and sample calculation, For a
day a conductor will have nearly 3-4 trips, among his trip if the
conductor takes 50 paise from 1 paasenger means in his single trip he
might not refund to nearly minimum of 30 - 40 passengers, so totally in
his whole day duty he might not refunded the amount of Rs.200 - Rs.300.
In a month of time if we calculate nearly a lum sum amount will be
gained by the conductors, which are not given to the counters or to the
depo. More over to his salary this amount will get added to every
Also recently the ticket fares are get raised because of the pertol
& Diesel price raised, but even after the Petrol & Diesel price
cut down the ticket fares are not reduced.
I like to suggest the either the ticket fares to get reduced or the
fares having the .50 paise should get removed such that the Ticket of
Rs.3.50/- to get reduced to Rs.3.00/- and the same for remaining.
If this happens then public will also get satisfied by the fares and
the correct ticket amount will be given by the public to the conductors.
Please take some action over my complaint as soon as possible.
