DTC short of depots

If high court orders dismantling of Indraprashtha depot, DTC will have to build new ones


Shivani Chaturvedi | October 25, 2010

The Delhi Transport corporation isplanning to add 200 new buses to its fleet but may not have enough space to house them, fear senior offcials at the transport authority.

Presently there are 40 depots housing buses to capacity. With the corporation adding about 1000 new buses -200 from Ashok Leyland by November and 800 procured during the Commonwealth Games - the transport authority may have bitten off more than it can chew. The buses that were bought during the event are presently at the DTC’s new temporary depot in Indraprastha. However, as this new depot was supposed to serve just for the duration of the Games and a petition in the Delhi high court has been filed against this depot on the riverbed, the authorities are now trying to get land for construction of new depots.  The DTC has written a letter to the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) demanding land for setting up additional depots. “One such demand is for land in South Delhi,” says an officer.

If the high court gives the order for dismantling this new depot, the DTC has to be prepared for more depots.
