Three-wheelers, vans won’t ferry schoolchildren, Govt tells Bombay High Court

After being rapped by the Bombay High Court for violating court orders, the Maharashtra State Transport Commissioner’s office on Thursday assured the court that it would modify a circular issued by it recently allowing three wheelers and vans to be used as school buses.

Government pleader Abhinandan Vagyani said, “The modified circular will be issued within one week, thereby allowing only those vehicles which meet safety standards as laid down by the central government rules for school buses to ply on the roads.”
