New Town to see Electric-Buses hitting the roads


Kolkata: After smart classrooms and digital libraries, Rajarhat will see Electric-run buses running on the new township areas. The Hidco and Coal India collaborated to bring about this new venture by signing a MoU. “We have decided to have three electric-run buses that will ply circular routes in New Town, Rajarhat.The routes will end in important points linking the city, such as Ultadanga, Karunamoyee, Chinrighata and Chinar Park,” said Hidco CMD Debashis Sen.

According to the venture, the pollution level in Rajarhat is surely to go down as electric buses will not give out soot emission, in turn it will help the environment in some way or the other. “The township is being developed as a green smart city and the electric-run buses will pave the way for the initiatives,” Sen added.
