Chandigarh: Haryana Transport Minister,  Krishan Lal Panwar said that a decision has been taken to pay TA/night allowance to crew members who operate buses and have a night halt beyond 25 kms from the depot or headquarters.
           Panwar, who was replying to a question raised by MLA, Mr. Ravinder Baliala during the third day of Monsoon Session of Haryana Vidhan Sabha here today said that a proposal to this effect has been approved by Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal.
           Panwar apprised the House that 132 routes of Haryana Roadways buses have been decided for Ratia. Besides, timetable of buses of eight cooperative committees were already decided. He said that Ratia has a three-bay bus stand. He said that according to rules, Ratia could not be given status of a sub-depot. A minimum of five acres of land is required for a sub-depot in which workshop is also to be constructed whereas there was only four acres of land in Ratia of which bus stand covers one acre.
      Panwar apprised the House that Ratia falls under Fatehabad depot and it was 23 km away from Fatehabad and 43 km from Tohana sub-depot. As many as 166 buses of Haryana Roadways were plying in Fatehabad and 44 in Tohana. He also informed that as per records of July 31, 2016, the loss of Fatehabad depot was Rs 8.33 crore. It would be the priority of the government to overcome the loss. He also informed that the double storey building of Fatehabad depot would be made four storey for which Rs 11 crore have been approved. He said that Rs 5.50 crore have already been released.
During discussion, Mr Bikram Singh Yadav raised the demand of giving status of sub-depot to Kosli and  Mr Mahipal Dhanda demanded to shift Panipat Bus Stand to Siwah, Mr Kehar Singh Rawat and Mr Pawan Saini demanded to improve transportation facilities in their respective areas.
