Shouting and soliciting passengers, and honking inside bus terminals will attract a fine of Rs 100 and Rs 500 respectively to help bring down noise levels at the inter-state bus terminals in the city.
Delhi Transport Infrastructure Development Corporation (DTIDC), which maintains the capital’s inter-state bus terminals, has issued an order enforcing the fines.
There are three ISBTs in the national capital — Kashmere Gate, Anand Vihar and Sarai Kale Khan. A fine of Rs 500 will be imposed on the driver of the bus using horn inside the premises of the ISBTs and a fine of Rs 100 shall be charged from the conductors or roadways staff soliciting passengers by shouting the destination point of bus, said the order issued by the corporation.
According to officials at DTIDC, noise pollution at ISBTs had reached an alarming level and immediate intervention was required to address the problem.
