TN strike: KSRTC cancels 111 buses

Bus services to Tamil Nadu were affected on Wednesday morning due to the strike called in the neighbouring state. Services resumed during the latter half of the day.

An official from KSRTC said Tamil Nadu-bound KSRTC bus operations were stopped from all the divisions. Services resume during the second half of the day.

However, the state transport corporation had to cancel 111 schedules by that time, leading to a loss of Rs 19 lakh.

The buses that entered Tamil Nadu on Tuesday are returning but no new services were operated in the first half of the day.

The official said daily, about 250 buses operate in the day and another 200 services at night.

On April 5, services were hit due to the bandh called in Tamil Nadu over Cauvery row. KSRTC had suffered a loss of Rs 26 lakh.
