Centre’s response not favourable towards KSRTC, says Aryadan


NEW DELLHI: Centre’s attitude towards the state’s demand for withdrawing KSRTC from the list of bulk diesel consumers, not favourable, said Power Minister Aryadan Muhammed. A favourable response was not obtained after talking with Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram, he said.

An extra burden of Rs 15 crores is incurred to the KSRTC after the state has been included in list of bulk diesel consumers. The corporation now has to buy diesel on market rate.

The centre has expressed their limitations in exempting KSRTC. The government is trying to solve the issue after giving benefits, said Aryadan.
