Muzaffarnagar: Uttar Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (UPSRTC) has banned conductors and drivers on duty from using mobile phones to prevent them from alerting their colleagues about surprise checks, officials said on Tuesday.

The direction came after UPSRTC received complaints that some staff members on duty had warned their colleagues of surprise inspections which were undertaken to check whether conductors were issuing tickets or not, they said.

The managing director of UPSRTC has already directed all regional managers in the state to execute the ban to facilitate the surprise checking, they added.

Regional manager Anil Kumar told reporters here that this step had been taken to check the staff, who were involved in charging passengers for tickets but did not issue the same.
