The dispute between schools and bus operators about adding more safety features has ended, with the School Bus Owners Association agreeing to fit CCTVs and a global positioning system (GPS) before schools re-open.

More than 1,500 school buses will be fitted with the cameras and a GPS to keep an eye on the children.

The added security features will cost parents at least Rs100 per child a month, driving up the bus fees by a minimum of 20%.
