The other day, Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) has decided to open the online ticket bookings for Super Luxury and Delux bus services from April 15th. On 5th of April, APSRTC has allowed the travelers to book their tickets but on Thursday, APSRTC has completely stopped accepting bookings.
Reports from the media are making waves that the lockdown might be extended by the Centre and keeping this mind, the higher officials of APSRTC gave a second thought about opening the bookings. But from April 5th, about 45,000 tickets have been booked and the RTC officials are considering to make refund to the people who have booked tickets.
Also with Telangana CM KCR categorically saying that the state would extend the lockdown, APSRTC has halted the booking services to Hyderabad city as well.
PM Modi will be holding a video conference with CMs of all the states tomorrow and then a proper decision on lockdown extension would come out. This would make things clear for APSRTC. Already Railways has halted the bookings till April 30th, so it most likely that RTC will follow.
