Cantt Board ropes in Army Police to tame sub-urban bus operators

Cantonment Board has roped in Army Police to recover revenue dues from sub-urban buses plying to Indore, Mhow, Pithampur and Manpur.

Several lakhs of revenue is due on sub-urban bus operators. The board in the past had even organised a camp but bus operators and their union continue to skirt paying the amount.

Cantonment Board Office Superintendent Satish Agarwal said that due to the lack of cooperation from local police, the board administration has roped in Army police for recovery.

In a recent meeting with union of sub-urban bus operators, Cantonment Executive Officer Dr Rajendra C Jagtap warned that the board would move the court if the dues were not cleared.
