The petition, filed by attorney Jose Abraham, says drivers don`t care about the difficulties faced by women with babies, people with physical disabilities and the elderly who have to leave their seats and move backwards on the bus to buy a ticket. Apart from other documents, applicants must bring valid conductor`s license, valid first aid, proof of identification, disability certificate (for PHP applicants). The court asked the government how it will ensure the implementation of this clause in the cluster buses and Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC), in which drivers sit in their seats and passengers go home to buy the tickets. The issue was raised in court in a PIL of Delhi`s Santosh Kumar, which said drivers in DTC buses and clusters never move through the bus to make sure everyone has received a ticket and sits in their intended seat. Eligible candidates for these Sarkari jobs must submit the application form in the prescribed format, as well as a photostat copy of all documents every working day (except Saturday, Sunday, public holidays) no later than June 30, 2020 from 10:00 am to the Delhi Transport Corporation, I.P Estate New Delhi. The person who previously worked as a contract driver in DTC, but was listed/terminated by DTC for one reason or another on the blacklist, is not required to apply. The Delhi Supreme Court on Wednesday asked the PAA government how it will ensure that DTC bus and cluster drivers go to passengers` homes to issue tickets, contrary to the prevailing practice of people going home. During the brief hearing, Judge Rao noticed that in Andhra Pradesh Schaffner goes to passengers` homes to issue them tickets. The court communicated the Delhi government and the DTC and sought their opinion on the plea that called for appropriate rules or guidelines to require drivers to issue tickets to all passengers who board a bus. Abraham said that in several states, drivers move around the bus and untie tickets, but this is not the case in Delhi. A bank of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Judge V K Rao said the agreement between the Delhi government and cluster bus operators provides that drivers must go to each passenger`s home and issue them a ticket.
« But despite such an injunction, the controllers of the DTC and Delhi cluster buses refuse to comply with the mentioned order by issuing tickets while sitting in the driver`s seat, instead of moving from the front to the back of the bus and making sure that passengers from each bus stop will pick up the ticket from the departure stop to the terminal stop. » That is what the plea says. « Such cases most often occur when passengers from other states board the aforementioned buses and are not aware of the practice of drivers (sitting in their seats), » the petition states. . . .
