Jaipur: The low floor buses of Jaipur City Transport Service Limited (JCTSL) have been running illegally in the city for the past two years. JCTSL submitted a registration request for ‘route permit’ to the transport department but never actually got it approved.

Sources said that the JCTSL officials and transport officials completely forgot about it.

Transport Minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas directed the department after the school bus accident took place in Karauli that no bus will run on the road without fitness and permission certificate.
