In a drive to improve the health and fitness of bus drivers and conductors of the Puducherry Road Transport Corporation, the government has now opened a gym for all employees.
The gym, which was inaugurated on Thursday, is one of the new projects of the PRTC to promote employee-wellness.
According to an official from PRTC, the idea is that when bus drivers and conductors get off work or are on leave, they will be able to use the gym, which is free for all PRTC employees. If the project is successful, further equipment will be added.
As it is important that bus drivers and conductors, who work long hours, are in good shape, this gym comes in handy. Their job is an extremely stressful one, and working out will help them with that as well. The gym was inaugurated by Chief Minister N. Rangasamy.
