Dear Sir,

This is to bring to the notice of BMTC management, and the Transport minister Mr. Ashok that there ia an anomaly in the student bus pass issuing and it has to be rectified. I want to bring to your notice my own experience. My daughter Shashi Priya K, after passing her PUC, had written CET conducted by KEA for admission to Engineering and other professional courses. She got a rank above 35000. We are not sure of getting a seat in Engineering course. Admissions for Degree courses are taking place, and they close even before the selection process for Engineering courses are conducted. So, to avoid wasting one academic year, I admitted my daughter in BCA course in Kristu Jayanti College at K. Narayanapura. We paid Rs.1390/- and got a pass from BMTC to travel from Ramamurthynagar to K. Narayanapura. But luckily, my daughter got Engineering seat in East point college for women at Bidarahalli, in the casual round. She got admitted in the Eastpoint college. We wanted to avail the student bus pass. We approached the BMTC. They said the pass issued earlier (from Ramamurthynagar to K. Narayanapura) is not valid, and they can't even give another pass on "Route Change" basis, because it can't be done from a Degree college to Engineering College. Because,the amount varies. For a degree college course it is Rs.1390/-, where as for Engineering College course it is Rs. 1750/-. My daughter was forced to get another pass by paying Rs.1750/-. The earlier pass for one full year has gone waste. The fault of my daughter is selecting an Engineering course!

I want to argue on two counts.
1. Why this hike in pass amount for Engineering students? After passing PUC, the bright student gets an engineering course, and a dull student gets a degree course. Why do you want to penalise a bright student? The parent pays more fee for sending his son/daughter for Engineering course. The Government also wants to extract more money! It is illogical. After all, they are travelling in the same BMTC buses. In my view, there must be only two slabs: School students, and post-school students.

2. The government is helping and encouraging the students by issuing subsidised passes. It is a social welfare measure. If a student changes the course, or college, the BMTC should give another pass without collecting any amount. Because, the student has already paid the amount for one full year. It is just a matter of change in route. There is no misuse of pass by the student. Every student aspires for a better course or college. The BMTC should encourage such students.

Hope the Government and BMTC will consider these arguments and make necessary changes atleast from next year.
K. Kumara Swamy.

I am doing MCA in RV college mysoore road...and there are 1or 2 busses for nayndahalli in the morning hours of college timing...
and there are no direct busses available at that time in the route of BANSANKERE TO RVCE.


at least provide us the suficient no. of busses between 8 am to 8:45 am for nayandahalli...
so we can exchange our bus there and go for RV college..as our college starts at 9 am.

I made the yearly bus pass, but I think it is of no use... as there are less busses in this route..during our college time.

Daily I am struglling to get bus and if get then I have to travel with almost my body outside the bus door...

so, please do something for us...
thank you

1. II PUC colleges have started the classed on 3.5.2010. Student Pass will be issued from 1st July 2010

Most of the II PUC Colleges have reopened and classes have started on 3rd May 2010. But the passes will be issued only from July 1st 2010. The answer from the pass counters of K R Pura, Domlur, Shivajinagar and Majestic are we not received 2010 circular, so we are helpless.

2. AS YOU LIKE PASSES NOT AVAILABLE ROUND THE YEAR AS SAID IN THE WEBSITE.

AS PUBLISHED IN THE WEBSITE 'AS YOU LIKE' PASSES ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN THE 3 BUSSTANDS, SHIVAJINAGAR, SHANTHINAGAR AND MAJESTIC. SHIVAJINAGAR ENQUIRY ANSWER WAS WHAT IT IS? WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT IT IS? PLEASE ENQUIRE AT MAJESTIC.

I went all the way to Majestic to get the As you like pass for my son. The answer was we have not received any circular. Circular will come only in July 2010. Hogi sir, amele ba...

While Govt is busy producng Vjra series, Kindly look into ordinary citizens, cry.

my son who is studying in 2nd puc took student bus pass paying Rs.1270/. since he has tution in varies places that pass cannot be used at all the time. I went jayanagar bus stand to enquire whether it can be changed "As you like pass".with what ever extra amount i.e Rs.1000/ . But they said not possible. If the person is ready to pay the differential amout what is the problem in doing that. Why these corporation says they are for services.If they not oblige small things like this what can ordinary people can do.To avoid extra burden he unnecesarily walks all the way .This year is crucial for him. If he waste time like this there is no use of tution. Please make some change in your pass renewal system which helps common people .I think Mr. Ashok will look in to the matter and will soon helps us in getting the new pass.
