School bus owners on strike in Mumbai

Mumbai: The School Bus Owners Association here began an indefinite strike on Friday, inconveniencing students and parents.

The Association said their representatives were called for a meeting with the Maharashtra government on Wednesday but their demands were not met.

"No concrete assurance has been received from the government," Association president Anil Garg said.

The Association had objected to the government's guidelines for school buses.

Following this, the state government had appointed a committee to look into the objections raised by the association. The panel submitted its report on January 31 but it has been not been implemented so far, Garg said.
