DTC buses — ladies reservation seat interstate/state buses
This is regarding seat reservation for ladies in DTC interstate/state buses. .
The rule says that the seat has to be vacated by any male passenger sitting in the seat reserved for ladies when there are any women passengers who ask for the same. But this does not happen at all. I travel daily from Karol Bagh Delhi to IFFCO Chowk Gurgaon and whenever I ask male passengers to vacate the seat, their usual reply is that, there is no reservation for ladies seat in inter state transport. This is in spite of the fact that there are seats clearly marked for ‘Ladies’.
I have in fact told some of the male passengers that they should at least leave the seat till the toll bridge. Once Haryana starts then they can occupy them again. But they don’t even listen to this.
Almost all seats are occupied by men and the conductors too, do not support women in getting seats. Its not that we ladies do not want to stand. It’s just that when the bus is crowded, men try and take advantage to misbehave and therefore for safety reasons women should get a seat as much as possible.
Request you to look into the same and implement this strictly on all the interstate/state buses.
