The Uttar Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (UPSRTC) management on Monday suspended an assistant regional manager (ARM) (finance) and set up a departmental inquiry against six accountants for allegedly making excess payments to operators of private buses that the corporation runs on contractual basis under an agreement with the bus owners. Under the agreement, private buses are paid on the basis of the kilometres covered by them.

The officers and other staff, against whom action has been taken, belong to the Lucknow region.

Giving this information, UPSRTC MD Raj Shekhar said six depot accounts had been removed from their posts and a departmental inquiry ordered while ARM, finance, Sanjeev Kant had been suspended and a show cause notice had been issued to ARMs of Kaiserbagh, Haidergarh and Charbagh. The regional manager, Lucknow, was chargsheeted.
