Gujarat Govt Issues New Safety Guidelines for School Vans, Buses

| Updated: June 11, 2024 16:12

The Gujarat government on Tuesday mandated safety regulations for school transport ahead of the new academic session, which starts on June 13. These regulations, which apply to school vans, buses, and autorickshaws, include speed restrictions, required fire extinguishers, and seating capacity limitations.

Ensuring the safe transportation of students to and from school is the aim of these procedures.

The age of students allowed to be seated at twice the vehicle’s seating capacity has been placed at 12 years. School buses must also have a fire alarm protection system installed, and their vehicles must pass fitness tests to guarantee that the LPG or CNG systems are installed correctly.

All District Education Officers and District Primary Education Officers have been directed by the transport department to notify parents and school administrators of these new regulations.

Legal action may be taken if the number of students seated in the vehicle exceeds the maximum for seating reserved for minors over the age of 12. To protect children, the transport department will continue to keep a watch on compliance with these guidelines.

The safety measures have been strengthened in the aftermath of the deadly fire incident that occurred at the TRP Game Zone in Rajkot, which claimed 33 lives, including 10 children.
