Bangalore news July 5 highlights: In a bid to prevent fuel pilferage at bus depots, Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) and Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) will have a digital locking system for diesel tankers. The initiative was introduced Thursday. The new system which works on GPS will digitally lock diesel transported from Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd ( BPCL) terminal to the depots. “It can be opened at the Depot premises only at a pre-designated geo fencing location. An alarm will be raised if it is operated outside the geo-fenced depot. This will reduce fuel theft, adulteration and diversion of the fuel,” a BMTC official told Indianexpress.com
Meanwhile, traffic inspectors and officials in the Bengaluru North division held a parade which was followed by vehicle inspection and traffic hand-signal exercises. The Bengaluru Traffic Police has also erected signboards with the revised rates that are in place for traffic violations in Bangalore.
