Jammu, September 12: Expressing its resentment against the offensive words and expressions written on the body of matadors, the Regional Transport Authority (RTA) has issued an order warning either to remove them or pay fine.
“Currently there are 2,000 matadors running on different routes and most of the matadors have offensive things written on their body. Such indecent words and expressions are having a bad effect on the society. We have given them 15 days to rectify everything. If they do not follow our orders they have to pay fine,” explained A K Khajuria Secretary of RTA.
Earlier, on 29th June, 2016 High Court had issued an order clearly stating that there will be a colour code for matadors running on one route, drivers and conductors will have to wear a proper uniform and there will be reserved seats for women.
Anil Chopra Chairman of Mini Bus Workers ‘Association has welcomed the decision of RTA.
