The city bus service which is to be fitted with GPS are in a trouble because the manufacturing companies have refused to make mini-buses with multiplex wiring. They are claiming that they would have to import the system from Europe. Without proper wiring, it would not be possible to intall GPS in the buses.
The service is being launched under Jawahar Lal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) and it is mandatory to install the GPS in the buses. Besides this, orders for other category of buses too are facing the same sort of problem. No manufacturing company is coming forward as the authorities are struggling to get a company solve this problem.
