THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:The students studying up to Plus Two can travel free in the Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) buses from Monday onwards. Though the KSRTC had issued orders in this regard making it effective from Sunday, it will actually come in to force on Monday.
All students, who have taken KSRTC concession cards, studying up to Plus Two will be able to utilise the free travel in all ordinary buses except in town to town buses.
The students can have the free travel card from the KSRTC units by remitting Rs 10. For distributing the cards also, all mandatory criteria which were followed while issuing the concession cards should be adhered to, said an order issued by chairman and managing director of KSRTC Antony Chacko the other day. The free travel facility will be available till March 31 of the academic year.
‘’The students whose concession cards have the validity till March 31 need not utilise the facility,’’ the order says.
Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan had announced free travel for students in KSRTC buses in the last Assembly session.
