Bengaluru: The Karnataka High Court on Monday January 2 issued a notice to the BMTC and the Transport Department in response to a PIL filed by a specially-abled person that questioned the tender sought for the purchase of new buses with a 1,000-mm chassis height.

Chief Justice Prasanna B. Varale and Justice Ashok S. Kinagi issued notice to them after hearing the petition, which was submitted by Sunil Kumar Jain, a city resident of Azadnagar. He sought for directions to specify that the floor height of the buses should be between 400 mm and a maximum of 650 mm and that the doors of the buses should include wheelchair boarding devices for the physically challenged and elderly.

The BMTC recently issued a tender for the purchase of 840 new, completely built city buses fuelled by BS-VI diesel.
