Currently, only six Volvo buses from the Haryana Roadways stable, which have plain transparent glasses, are plying on the Chandigarh-Delhi route.
The Haryana transport department has temporarily suspended online and advance bookings for these buses. Haryana’s director general (DG) (Transport) Arun Kumar said, “Our buses were being challaned and even impounded for having black films on the windowpanes. We have started removing the shaded films, which may take another fortnight or so. We regret the inconvenience caused to the travellers.”
Those travelling from the city to Delhi or Gurgaon are now a harassed lot. Also, the burden has now shifted to Punjab Volvo buses.
Talking to HT, Manimajra resident Sudhir Sharma said, “I had gone to the Sector-17 ISBT to book a ticket for my daughter, but the person at the ticket-counter refused. He said that buses are busy in getting black films removed.” Current ScheduleTentative schedule of the plying buses:5am: Chd to IGI Gurgaon via Delhi4pm: Chd to IGI Gurgaon via Delhi5pm: Chd to IGI Gurgaon via Delhi10pm: Chd to IGI Gurgaon via Delhi11.15pm: Chd to IGI Gurgaon via Delhi1am: Chd to IGI Gurgaon via Delhi
