Bengaluru: Transport corporations register loss of Rs 560 crore due to lockdown

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jun 9: It is learnt that the state road transport corporation, which had been battered due to coronavirus infection when it first appeared, got further beating because of the second wave. The lockdown losses incurred by the corporations have been put at Rs 560 crore. As a result, all the four corporations are struggling to disburse salaries to their employees.

After the government announced lockdown because of corona infection, the corporations have not been able to run their buses. The corporations had also suffered heavily due to the strike announced by the employees in pursuance of their demands. They were hoping to recover, when the second wave came and flattened their enthusiasm.

If the operations of buses run by all the four corporations are stopped for a day, they incur loss of about Rs 14 crore. Bangalore Metro Transport Corporation earns Rs 2.5 to three crore rupees every day. It has been 40 days since the lockdown was announced and therefore BMTC has incurred a loss of Rs 120 crore. KSRTC which earns seven crore rupees per day has suffered loss of Rs 280 crore during the 40 days it has been not operational.

The northwest transport corporation earns Rs two crore every day and its loss is calculated at Rs 80 crore. The North east transport corporation which earns two crore rupees everyday has lost Rs 80 crore.

    I guess he commented on sarcastic note, he should have elaborated more to understand! Bhakthas willing to pay 500/- Lit, they are living on others costs and raking religious sentiments to earn a living! Life is tough for daily wagers and people selling foot ware, garments, electronics and so on! People selling pharmacy, grocery, milk related, finance companies, couriers, ambulance drivers/ owners ----once in a life time opportunity to amass wealth like never before.....any IT ride on them??? We haven't read any!! Most Politicians they earn in crores....lockdown or not!! Jai jai!!
