BARAMA, Aug 3 - Due to the inaction of the State Transport Department and Baksa administration, dumpers from Bhutan are plying illegally on lease at Baksa causing resentment among the public.
According to the rules of the Transport Department, if a vehicle from outside the State is brought then the registration of the vehicle is needed to be done. Under such circumstances how dumpers from the neighbouring Bhutan is illegally operating at Baksa, is a big question mark. According to norms, vehicles registered in Bhutan can run on the streets, but cannot be used for transportation services. However, maximum numbers of registered dumpers from Bhutan are used in Baksa.
It is worth mentioning that a group of people, contractors and construction companies have brought the registered dumpers from Bhutan on lease and are using it in different locations of Baksa for carrying sand, gravel and dirt. These dump trucks are also seen moving on the main roads to village roads. It is also learnt that these dumpers are used for the repairing work of the National Highway. Many dumpers even don�t have the number plate and pollution certificates.
On the other hand, it is also seen that the drivers of this dumpers drive rashly on the main road creating horror among the public. Sources further said that the State Government is losing crores of revenue as maximum numbers of dumpers from Bhutan are available for commercial purpose here.
