campaign in the City on Monday.

The BMTC teams, stationed at select bus stops across the City between 8 am to 12 noon, will monitor whether the bus drivers and conductors follow the traffic rules and road discipline.

The teams will make note of the drivers and conductors who are not complying with the rules and regulations and forward the same to the higher-ups in the corporation.
