As we know the Maharashtra State Road Transport (MSRTC) is facing serious financial problems, MSRTC chairman, Anil Parab expressed confidence and stated that the situation of the MSRTC will change over the next six months. And no plans to privitise it.During a press conference at Ratnagiri, Parab said that the accumulated losses of the MSRTC have increased during the corona period, but after a discussion with the chief minister Uddhav Thackeray and the deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar, a package of Rs.1000 crore has been announced in order to pay for the salaries of the MSRTC employees, diesel and other expenses.
He said efforts are being made to increase the revenue of the MSRTC.As part of it, the tyre moulding project may be commenced and the freight business is also under consideration. The state government’s freight business will be given to the MSRTC.Besides this; the MSRTC itself is assembling its buses. He said that MSRTC’s diesel pumps will be opened to the public. Initially, 30 pumps will be allowed to be opened. These days, the buses of MSRTC are running empty. An action plan is prepared to change this situation. Therefore; there is no idea to privitise the corporation.
