According to the reports form Transport department, a special operation was carried out on Bellary Road under the direction of Yelahanka Regional Transport Officer Prakash. It was learnt that buses were travelling in the State having the permit documents from Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh.

They are not supposed to ply as regular stage carriage buses, picking up and dropping passengers from bus stands and en route bus stops. However, these buses had been plying as regular stage carriages within city limits.

The owners of buses have been issued notices and they will have to respond to it, following which they have to submit the related documents and the fine amount," said a senior RTO official.
