In Nalbari Assam govt planned to launch city bus service

Guwahati: The Assam government has unveiled a plan to introduce city bus service in Nalbari district to increase public transport connectivity.

In a meeting with representatives of the Assam State Transport Corporation (ASTC), Minister Jayanta Mallabaruah, who oversees various departments, discussed the feasibility of starting a city bus service in the Nalbari region.
In an effort to promote tourism and preserve natural attractions, Mallabaruah also held a comprehensive meeting with representatives of tourism and forest departments at his Janata Bhawan office.

The discussion focused on joint efforts to develop Deepor Beel and other tourist destinations within the state.
Recognizing the importance of inter-departmental coordination, they explored strategies to promote sustainable tourism and harness the state’s natural resources.

However, recent reports have highlighted irregularities within the Assam State Transport Corporation.

It was revealed that around 771 employees were hired illegally during the tenure of the former managing directors. As a result, ASTC has decided to terminate the employment of these persons.
In response to ASTC’s decision, the company’s employees went on a statewide strike from June 1.

The Transport Department, after a thorough investigation, will review the status of existing contract employees within ASTC.

Based on this assessment, a decision will be made to retain only legally appointed contract workers deemed essential to operations.

The remaining employees will be relieved of their positions immediately, which is expected to be completed within 60 days.
