The Transport Department of Karnataka launched a proactive campaign against such practice ahead of Sankranthi. 368 cases have been registered against agencies engaging in such unfair practices. In the past 3 days, 368 buses have been booked in relation to the Transport Department’s initiative. The Regional Transport Office (RTO) formulated 8 task forces to identify buses which have been breaking the norms of the rules of the RTO.  Each task force consisted of 2 RTO inspectors and 2 RTO officials. Raids took place in several parts of the state. Instances of goods transport were also noted during the raids. 

The taskforce personally engaged with the passengers during the raids. They enquired whether the rate of increase in tickets has been exponential during Sankranthi. Some of the passengers were first time travellers whereas some had noted a marginal increase.
