NEW DELHI: Tata Motors has undertaken an exhaustive check-up of all its low-floor high-capacity CNG buses supplied to Delhi Transport Corporation so far. The process will be completed by this month-end . The move comes in the wake of a series of fire accidents in these new buses raising passenger safety concerns.

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.

The conductor noticed smoke coming out of the rear of the vehicle and asked the driver to stop the bus

Payment of Rs 150 crores on the lot of 90 buses has been withheld along with Rs 4 crores out of the total bill of Rs 10 crores to be paid to the Tatas

NEW DELHI: Hot on the heels of two low-floor Delhi Transport Corporation buses developing snags leading to a fire in one of them on Saturday, yet another bus was hit by a mechanical snag at Sagarpur in West Delhi on Sunday. Half a dozen such incidents have been reported this year.

NEW DELHI: Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly V. K. Malhotra has expressed concern at recent incidents of fire in some of the newly-commissioned low-floor buses, saying they have become a cause for alarm even as the terror of Blueline buses persists as they are yet to be phased out completely.

Concerned over a spurt in fires aboard CNG buses, the transport department of Delhi Government is now tightening its noose around bus operators evading the mandatory CNG-kit test.
