This large return in 2013 was marked by an increase in the price of school vans as explained Jungee Nazir, Chairman of Van Komité secondary pathways.

"This is a significant figure, we are confident that all the vans that operate for the pre-primary and primary education are the standards," Nazir Jungee advance. The only downside, according to the chairman of this committee is that the NTA is not recorded until when the provision is sick or can not come to work.
"When our waiting is suffering or is obliged to be absent, we normally take someone to replace our family. And that person will not be stuck to the NTA. In this case, the NTA says it will be flexible, but it is certain that the police will not go into such details of the disease, "he said.
Schools due to the Van Komité said waiting for a solution of the NTA. But in the meantime the back looks good for them. "This increase should be applied since August 2012, but we waited for the start of 2013. This contributed to give a salary to our waiting. Generally, the salary is around Rs 3,000 and Rs 4,000, depending on the way" Nazir Jungee supports. This explains that even when back is always difficult. "At the start, especially with toddlers it is not obvious, they must adapt and we also have to adapt, it takes at least two weeks", says Nazir Jungee.
NTA appears satisfaction. "We believe that all the vans that transport children will rule at the beginning. Our inspectors are on the ground after a week. Were given time to adapt to vans, to finalize everything. What matters most now this is the safety of children. And this is zero tolerance.'s vans that were not registered to obtain an identity card for the helper are those carrying the students, "said Cyril Appajala , Traffic Controller at the NTA. Back which gives a still higher rate of school vans ... When it comes to security, the money is short, say some.
