Have you every thought of the reason why KSRTC is incurring loss? And all other private buses in Kerala are running with high profit..! well we have to just study the structure and organisation of KSRTC. The decisions, including appointments, are mainly influenced by the Unions, and the Unions affiliated to various political parties including that of Shri R.Balakrishna Pillai. 2. KSRTC is a Trivandrum based private company, mainly operated for the benefit of big, medium and small BABUS (bueaurocrats). 3. Routes are allotted and operated without studying its financial viability (we call it a 'public transport system' meant for the society, without profit motive)!!! 4. You can see a number of buses in Trivandrum City plying with the board 'STUDENTS ONLY" "LADIES ONLY" etc. There will be long Q s of buses in front of ALL SAINTS' COLLEGE, TRIVANDRUM in the morning and afternoon to pick up and drop "LADIES ONLY" from this LADIES ONLY COLLEGE to various parts of the city. Similarly hundreds of buses can be seen plying with "students only" board to all the private and govt. schools in the morning and evening...!! You can imagine what will be the return from such buses. Naturally there will be heavy losses. Apart from Trivandrum I have not seen this arrangement anywhere else in Kerala. And the loss of KSRTC is 'written off' with the tax money of all Keralites..!! If this can be stopped and the ratio of employees per bus could be brought down as in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, all losses will disappear. Somebody should bell the cat. Earlier there was a good proposal to bifurcate KSRTC into 2 or 3 separate companies, but the 'political and beaurocratic bosses' did not agree to it for obvious reasons. Now the question is WHO WANTS THIS "WHITE ELEPHANT" TO BE MAINTAINED INCURRING SUCH HEAVY LOSSES? No one will lose the job if KSRTC is bifurcated into 2/3/4 companies and we can see each company making profits. so please don't waste your tears for this white elephant.
