 Addressing reporters here on Saturday, after having a discussion with Deputy Conservator of Forest, Assistant Conservator of Forest and Range Forest Officer of the district Forest department, he said, the Action Force intends to provide market for the bio-fuel, hence, talks are on with the KSRTC officials.

The marketing units have already been set up at some of the depots on experimental basis and it is being contemplated to set up these units at all the 176 depots in the State, he said. Honge, Neem and Jatropha seeds will be sold in these units. Oil from these seeds will also be extracted in the unit, he added. Currently, 1,500 KSRTC buses are being run on bio-fuel which would be enhanced to 5,500 by the end of the year.
