Pune, 6th March 2023: Private contractors hired by Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Ltd (PMPML) went on strike from Sunday afternoon demanding payment of outstanding dues. As a result, over half of the buses, including 954 buses in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad cities, remained off the roads causing inconvenience to lakhs of passengers.

Passengers traveling for the Holi festival were forced to seek alternative transport options. The strike has been called to demand the outstanding amount for circulation deficit and other dues from Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporations. The PMPML administration has initiated discussions with the contractors to resolve the issue.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) delegation is set to meet PMPML President and Managing Director, Omprakash Bakoria, to discuss the matter. The PMPML has started providing services through its fleet of 829 buses and 125 leased buses to minimize the impact of the strike. However, if the strike continues, students of class 10 and class 12 may face inconvenience.

The PMPML has assured the contractors that their dues will be cleared by 15th March 2023, but the contractors have continued their strike. The private contractors participating in the strike include M Travel Time Mobility India Pvt Ltd, M Antony Garages Pvt Ltd, M Hansa Vahan India Ltd, M Olectra Greentech Ltd, M EV Trans Pvt Ltd, and May Oha Commute Pvt Ltd.

Passengers are advised to seek alternative transport options until the issue is resolved.
