Following repeated incidences of fire in low-floor buses, manufacturer Tata Motors admitted that most vehicles involved did have a mechanical fault.

Of the eight buses, three have reported trouble with the brake system.

NEW DELHI: An increased number of checks and strengthened maintenance system are required for the Tata Motors Ltd. (TML) supplied low-floor Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses, TML commercial vehicle business unit president Ravi Pisharody said here on Thursday.

After the spate of breakdowns and fires in the Delhi Transport Corporation

Worried over the incidents of fire on low floor buses, Environment Pollution Control Authority chairman Bhure Lal has suggested both DTC and Tata Motors carry out a double checking system in these buses.

New Delhi: This is, perhaps, the mother of all U-turns. After drawing flak from Delhi government for its statement about how bad roads, and not faulty maintenance, was causing fires and smokes in its buses, Tata Motors has written to the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) denying it had ever said so.

A cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan here today endorsed state's new Transport Policy. Under the policy, District Transport Authorities will be established on the lines of State Transport Authority and Regional Transport Authority. The committee headed by the district collector will issue permits and determine routes in the district.
