kk

KOCHI: The Kerala High Court has stayed the Motor Vehicle Department's action revoking the permit of Robin Bus. The High Court issued an interim order freezing the process of revoking the permit till December 18. The High Court said that it would not comment on the government's argument that the permit has expired. The court also said that if the MVD officials seize the bus, they must release it after levying a fine.

The permit of Robin Bus, which is facing action for violating the All India Tourist Permit rules, was revoked on Wednesday. The permit was revoked by the Transport Secretary on the grounds of continuous violations. The Transport Secretary took action citing the All India Tourist Permit Rules of 2023.

The order issued by the Transport Secretary stated that the bus was likely to continue to violate the rules in the future. The All India Permit of the bus is in the name of K Kishore, a native of Kozhikode. Girish has been tasked with managing the bus.

Earlier, the Motor Vehicle Department (MVD) had slapped fines on the bus regularly for violating the permit. The MVD also seized the bus the other day. It also registered a case against the bus. The bus was seized on the grounds that it was continuously violating the permit in violation of the High Court order. Transport Minister Antony Raju had warned that strict action would be taken against the bus.
