Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami on Wednesday (September 2) announced inter-district bus transport and passenger train services within the state would be permitted to operate from September 7.
Currently, bus services are allowed only within districts. There were representations from the public to the government seeking facilitation of bus services to go from one district to another, the chief minister said.
“Considering public welfare, following the Standard Operating Procedure, from September 7, inter-district government and private bus transport will be allowed across Tamil Nadu,” Palaniswami said in a statement.
Similarly, he said, from the same date, passenger train services within Tamil Nadu shall be permitted. Inter-state train services are already operational in permitted routes.
