NMMT is under staffed and the public transport undertaking is citing this as the reason for the pathetic state of affairs of their functioning on many routes. With a fleet of 300 old and new buses, NMMT needs atleast a staff inclusive of drivers and conductors of 2100. However presently it has only 1600, which according to NMMT is the reason for their poor services on many routes. The worst affected routes due to shortage of staff that impacts frequency of services fall between Panvel to Karghar and other ring routes of Nerul and Koparkharine. And it’s not like the NMMT General Manager is not aware of these issues. He however assured that he is working on a solution for these commuters woes as induction of drivers and conductors are underway. With cameraperson Kala Jadhav, Shilpa Suryawanshi for NMTV News.
