A technical bidding process was conducted regarding appointment of agency. A period of three months will be given to advisory agency and next action will be taken after receiving the report from it.

Advisory agency has been appointed to suggest the way the city bus should be run by the Municipal Corporation, informed NMC administration. Accordingly, Crisil will conduct survey of the city bus service and will check its practicality.
