The TSRTC said the corporation has filed separate complaints at the respective police stations of the Rachakonda Commissionerate for these incidents, and investigations are ongoing. An appropriate legal action would be taken against the culprits.

The Corporation MD VC Sajjanar said TSRTC staff diligently adhere to corporation rules, with conductors continuing to issue tickets according to regulations. Passengers are urged to cooperate and take tickets during their journey; failure to do so may jeopardize the staff’s jobs, leading to departmental action.

The staff reported instances of passengers using photocopies or smartphone images of identity cards instead of the original. TSRTC emphasizes that the original identity card must be presented to avail of the Mahalakshmi scheme. Email ArticlePrint Article
