The team conveyed to the school authorities about the deficiencies with regard to fitness of vehicles, other documents besides mandatory parameters pertaining to safety of school children in each vehicle and directed to rectify the deficiencies immediately and submit the compliance report within 10 days positively.
The safety audit comes after recent concern over the safety of school buses in the region, prompting the RTO to take proactive measures to address any potential risks.

Any deviation or non-serious approach on part of school authorities will be dealt seriously which may lead to seizure of school buses also.
