The Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has informed the Kerala High Court that since the corporation is in a severe financial crisis, it has not cleared the entire liabilities stemming from motor accidents.
The KSRTC said that however, all earnest efforts were being made to settle claims at the earliest with its limited resources.
The affidavit was filed by the KSRTC in response to a petition by S. Manmadan of Neendakara seeking a directive to insure all the corporation buses and maintain a fund in accordance with Section 146 of the Motor Vehicles Act as expeditiously as possible.
The corporation said that all its Fast Passenger, Super Fast, Express, and light express buses had been insured. It submitted that better training was being provided to the corporation drivers with the aim of reducing the number of accidents.
An accident monitoring and controlling system had been introduced to monitor and study the reasons for each accident.
