U.P., Delhi agree on some routes, to meet again

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: The transport officials of Uttar Pradesh and Delhi inched closer towards finding an amicable solution to the long-running dispute over plying of Delhi Transport Corporation and U.P. State Road Transport Corporation buses in each other's territory at a meeting held at the DTC headquarters in I.P. Depot here on Friday. The two sides, while agreeing on operations on certain routes, will meet again in Lucknow next week to discuss operations on the other routes.

A senior DTC official said all through the day the seven-member delegation of U.P. led by the Secretary of the State Transport Authority held detailed discussions with their Delhi counterparts. "The discussions focussed on the schedules of the buses of the two corporations operating on various routes and it was not an `either or' situation''.

Stating that the there was no rigid stand on either the kilometre basis which was earlier being sought by Uttar Pradesh or the trip basis which was being sought by Delhi, the senior official said ."In the end there would be no drastic increase or decrease in operations of either Corporation,'' said the official.
