Jammu, Mar 24: Minister for CAPD and Transport, Qamar Ali Akhoon has said that government has submitted a project of 450 buses to the centre for approval to meet the need of plying SRTC buses on various routes especially in hilly and remote areas in the state.
This was stated by the Minister in reply to the supplementaries of several members raised on the main question by M S Niaz in Legislative Assembly here today.
The Minister said that government is purchasing 10 more buses for operation in Doda district, adding that the demand of Bhaderwah would also be accordingly catered to.

He said the demand of the area for plying SRTC buses on various routes of these twin districts would be fulfilled after receiving the approval of Centre.
Replying to the main question, the Minister informed the House that inadequacy in SRTC buses operation in Thatri, Bhallessa and Bhaderwah blocks is because of limited fleet availability of buses, adding that on the basis of availability of buses two routes from Doda-Bhaderwah and Bhaderwah-Chinta are covered by JKSRTC buses presently.
