Incidents, where bus officials have given tickets to roosters and other animals, are already known. But in two separate incidents the Karnataka bus drivers were hit with caution for not issuing a ticket to Jackfruit and a gas stove. Yes, you read that right. A sister in Raichur boarded a bus of Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) with an LPG gas stove weighing about half a kilogram. The inspector in the bus starts confirming the tickets given to the passengers. He noticed that the woman holding the stove for herself was not for the stove he called ‘extra load’. He accused Goraknath of failing in his duties and ordered him to be disciplined.
In another similar incident, a jackfruit was pushed by a bus driver to the edge. A very powerful man was carrying a jackfruit that weighed about a kilogram on a KSRTC bus in Arasikere. While conducting the same inspection, the inspector-general charged Judge Raghu guilty of not charging for jackfruit. Raghu tried to explain in all possible ways that such a small thing could not get extra energy and that it was only fruit after all. But apparently, the inspector did not listen and struck a disciplinary note against him.
According to KSRTC regulations, travelers are allowed to carry up to 25kg luggage with them. Anything above is accepted as an additional ticket and you will have to pay an additional amount. Passengers in both of these buses expressed surprise and amazement at the actions of the inspectors.
Earlier this month, the director of a fair car that wanted to increase the effort, expressed a surprise. He gave a ticket to a rooster following a bus in the Karim Nagar area of Telangana. Video of the incident went viral on social media shortly after it sparked an uproar among fellow travelers. It is for the purposes of which the TSRTC receives charges for freight from its travelers. Generally, tickets are not for animals and birds in RTC buses as travelers are accustomed to bring them. However, a director of Godavarikhani depot in Karim Nagar area has made a ticket for a rooster with its owner.
