Hello All,

This is to bring to your notice an incident where a BMTC bus conductor did not issue a ticket to me inspite of several requests to grant me a ticket.
I boarded a BMTC bus (Reg No: KA 01 F 1897, Route No: 360) last Monday (March 16th 2009) from Madivala check post at around 6:15pm. I wanted to get down at the Lalbagh Main Gate and hence gave a 10 Rupee note to the conductor. The conductor did not return any change and neither issued a ticket and went away from me and started collecting money from the other passengers. As the bus approached NIMHANS I asked him to give me a ticket but he ignored my plea; he ignored my plea once again when I requested him for a ticket once the bus crossed Wilson Garden. As the bus reached Lalbagh I asked him several times to issue a ticket but he refused to do so and finally I asked him to atleast give me the change and after grumbling he gave me Rs 2. I then got off the bus at the Lalbagh Main gate at around 6:45pm.
This is a serious ongoing issue that the BMTC is facing wherein conductors do not issue tickets and pockets the passenger's money which results is huge losses ( in lakhs) to the State Govt everyday.

ALL THOSE POSTING COMPLAINTS AGAINST THE BMTC SHOULD SEND THEIR COMPLAINT TO THE CHIEF TRAFFIC MANAGER, BMTC - [protected]@gmail.com

BMTC — NOT ISSUING TICKETS-BMTC CONDUCTORS :(

Hello sir,

This is to bring to your notice that, the conductors not issuing tickets even the ticket amount is given. they give back the change without giving tickets.

I work for a software firm at Bagamane Tech Park, i travel from BEML gate to Bagamane tech park.The fare for which is 3 rupee, i have to literally beg the bus conductor to issue the ticket else he charges 2 rupee, and moves on.

I really feel ashamed to confess that people traveling in the bus are happy that they have to pay less and have a ticket less traveling.

Please place a ticket collector/checker at Bagamane tech or some where in between BEML and the tech park.

Hope some serious action is taken regarding this.The conductors are openly stealing the government money.

Thanks
Vinay

BMTC — conductor not issuing ticket

sir,

this is to bring to your notice that, the conductors not issuing tickets even the ticket amount is given. they give back the change without giving tickets.

i boarded the bus 373J at BANASHANKARI AT 1:20PM ON 7TH AUGUST IE TODAY, having the registration num as KA01-FA960 & my ticket no is NO31 190668.
i asked the conductor for the ticket for KS layout by giving Rs 5, the exact ticket fee, but he returned Rs2 back without issuing the ticket. i started an argument with him n he wasnt in the position to face me but still he also argued that he was correct. And at last he issued the ticket.
but me, as a citizen, would like to bring to your notice about this. this amount might be small, but in collection, its huge.. pls take a stringent action on him so that we can curb this kind of malpractice in future. i even have the ticket with me so that i can scan a copy n send it to u as a proof.

regards
abhishek
They never give me ticket for rs 3/- . Upon insisting they yell at me. :(

CONDUCTORS NOT ISSUING THE TICKETS:-

i do agree with this issue... even today(31 march 09) when i got into the BMTC bus, the conductor refused to issue the ticket.
bus no.-KA 01 F-2426
the fare is Rs 7, i gave him rs 10 but instead of the ticket he gave me Rs 5 back and said i have to adjust, since i do not prefer corruption by any mode i insisted him to give me the ticket, for thet he became too rude and told me to give him a change of rs 2 when i said i do not have the change he gawked. I forcefuly made him to give me the ticket.
It is not the 1st time happening like this.number of times i have fought with the conductors just to get my ticket. What actions does the BMTC authorities are upto. The way day by day these type of corruption increases, it indicates that BMTC is not taking any actions. its our money which is going into someones pocket. when this issue is going to end??? i do not think its going to end anymore until and unless severe actions are taken.
only one thing we public can tell
" when u cannot avoid corruption in small area, then how it will be erased through out INDIA"
and a word to the public also.
" PLEASE ASK FOR YOUR TICKET"
hope for the better actions

Hi,

This is Amit kumar,
Today I was travelling from mejestic To ITPL.
I was having a premium BMTC pass worth Rs1500/= issued in ITPL.
I use that pass only in ITPL.But one today I was using that pass in local BMTC bus.
I have not written my name in that bus pass so some unidentified whom they called himself as ticket checker took my bus along with my Bus Id card which i have made in mejestic.
They said my name is not written on this pass so they will snatch from me.
I told infront of everyone that i donot know kannada and enerything in that pass is wriiten in Kannada.
So how can i understand.
So i requested them that i will write my name infront of them...

But those ppl behaved very rudely and didn't return my pass...and keep saying something in kannada which i suspect it migth be abuse word...

After this incident i really felt bad and questioned my self why i came to this bad place...

BMTC — non issue of ticket to passenger

I was travelling by bus no.KA 01/ FA-915 Route 328 from Domlur to Marthahalli at 10:30 AM on 09 Jul 2009. My ticket no. is M45 986264 for Re.10. A passenger gave 10 rupee to Conductor, the Conductor of the bus did not give ticket to a passenger and returned 5 rupees. When I insisted for issue of a ticket to him, afterv a lot of discussion he gave him 7 rupees ticket by collecting rupees 2 more and using indecent language. It is as if being a third man if i could have not intrfered, he would have pocketed the money.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Conductor using rash way when we ask for Tickets

This is to bring to your kind notice that, a conductor in bus no. KA 01 FA 1257, route from Yelahanka to Shivajinagar dated 28/07/2009 around 8:45 am morning, used such a bad lang while i asked him to issue ticket from Ashwathnagar to Nagavara Ring Road.

Usally no conductors issue tickets for 2 to 3 stops in nagavara route. Always they demand for Rs.2 or 3 and refuce to give Tickets.

Hoping that u will kindly do the needful and help the people traveling in BMTC
Yes...I agree with Abishek its huge loss for our Nation by doing such activities.

Even I too faced the same problem today morning as I was travelling from Ejipura to Indiranagar in 201Q bus at 9.40 a.m. Most of the time i Travel in d same bus and i have observed some misbehaving character by the Conductor. He first collect money from everyone and then later issues ticket whomever asks. Many a time people who has to get down in the next stop ignores to ask for the ticket. Nearly the conductor has collected money from 10 people & he issued ticket only for 4 to 5 members. I asked him for ticket for several time...only then he had issued the ticket. He did not issue ticket to one of frnd who travelled along with me, I asked ticket on behalf of my frnd but he refused to give ticket and he said that i have no rights to ask him for others and he started to scream in the bus. He also said if you are that much cared you yourself issue the ticket. I argued with him for some time and later I kept quite.

We ourselves responsible for our own problems. People say that he or she is bad but don open their mouth at correct place and time...If anybody from the bus had given me the support i would have taken him to the concerned office for his misbehaviour. But Everyone was keeping their mouth shut.

I was correct...& i honestly take my ticket everytime that is the reason i got angry on my fellow citizen. People will not fight or argue for their rights. If not we then who...?

Hi,

On 15-Dec-2009, I get on the bus no. KA-FA/1664, route no. 356, from Madivala & ask conductor to give a ticket to Sasken by giving Rs 10 note, he returned Rs 5 to me without any ticket, & when i asked him for the ticket, he gave me Rs 4 ticket no. NU[protected] & said it is till Bomanhalli, & there is no stop at Sasken, & when he came to know i don’t know Kannada he started talking in Kannada.
After that he misbehaved & we had an argument, also he was asking me to get down before the bus stop itself. Then i get down at Bomanhalli.
The point is, if i would have not asked for the ticket then there is a stop at Sasken otherwise not.

When i took another bus from Bomanhalli, which was moving parallel with last bus, I noticed that that the previous bus also stopped at Sasken.
Then I realize that the conductor want to get me into trouble.

The only point is due to this behavior of many Bus conductors everyday people in bangalore are giving the penalty, so please take the necessary action & revert in case of any clarification required.

Roopam Agarwal

Hi All,

Conductor behavior for bus no. KA-01 FA1745 was not good.
I travelled from BTM to Ecospace at 11:20 am from 500c Vajra.
They gave the teared Rs.20 Note, when I asked him to get it changed, conductor started shouting in kannada.
he had another Rs20 note, but he was not ready to change it.
Please handle such kind of situations seriously, conductor should behave nicely with the traveller.
