GPS operational in 100 buses: Delhi govt tells HC
New Delhi: The NCT government today
informed the Delhi High Court that the Global Positioning
System (GPS) is operational in 100 buses and would be
installed in 1,000 more buses in four months.
Appearing for the Delhi government, counsel Meera
Bhatia told the Division Bench of Justices Vikramjit Sen and
A K Pathak that 100 buses with GPS facility are operational
and plying on the roads in South Delhi and the government will
make the system operational in 500 DTC and 500 Blueline buses.
Earlier this week, the High Court had asked the
government about the status of installation of Global
Positioning System (GPS) in the buses on the city roads.
Taking suo motu cognisance of the number of accidents
by Blueline buses on the city roads in 2008, the High Court

the "killer" buses from the roads.
Meanwhile, the Bench extended the Blueline operators
permits for another four months.
