In Udaipur, there is a shortage of supervisors on the roadways, causing operational issues. Bus conductors are now being asked to operate buses due to this. However, many potential bus conductors are hesitant to take on the role because they are worried about meeting performance targets.

Despite the approval to employ 40 bus conductors in Udaipur roadways, only 25 have been recruited so far. Municipal sources indicate that Udaipur Depot manages buses across 80 routes, but only 25 supervisors are assigned to the bus conductor scheme out of a total of 71 permanent supervisors in depot. Moreover, approximately 13 to 15 supervisors are engaged in ticketing, inquiries, and other operational duties.

Recently, five contract buses have arrived in Udaipur, with an additional five expected soon. These buses are operated by their drivers, highlighting the need for supervisors from the roadways to ensure proper oversight. Plans are underway to resume routes where bus services have been discontinued due to the supervisor shortage, which could potentially impact bus operations.

Across various routes including Bhopal, Ujjain, Burhanpur, Ratlam, Ahmedabad, Haridwar, Khatushyamji, Jaipur, and others, there is a noticeable lack of interest among bus conductors.

Bus conductors often show a preference for long-distance routes, where buses typically complete return trips within two to three days. They are given monthly targets, and failing to meet these targets even once can result in several days spent trying to recover.
