Over 100 private buses found to be operating without permits

The National Transport Commission says that nearly 100 private buses operating from Colombo to distant areas run without a route permit.

Commission Chairman M.A.H Hemachandra said that around 30 buses from Jaffna to Colombo run without a route permit. He added that those buses run with the assistance of certain police stations. The chairman said that although raids were being carried out, it was difficult to charge the buses according to transportation law.
