THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Elderly people can now heave a sigh of relief. For, more seats in all ordinary and limited stop ordinary buses plying in the state are going to be demarcated for the old people.

Ten percent of the total seats in all buses inclusive of  KSRTC ordinary/limited stop ordinary schedules will be reserved exclusively for the grey population against the existing five percent. Orders have been issued in this regard, according to transport minister V S Sivakumar.

The Minister informed that strict instructions have gone to the officials concerned that reservation of seats for the elderly in the revised pattern should be ensured through clear demarcation in buses at the time of issuing fitness certificate and during inspection.
