The News Minute | September 30, 2014 | 9.41 am IST Drivers and conductors of the debt-ridden Kerala State Transport Corporation (KSRTC) buses will be paid promotional wages. Those buses that manage to run profitably will be identified on a daily basis and the drivers and conductors of such buses will be given a special wage.Â The KSRTC has already made a loss of Rs. 427 crore in 2013-14. If the buses run making profit for a whole month, the employees of such buses will be awarded a â€˜good serviceâ€™ tag in their reports, reported the Malayalam daily Malayala Manorama.Â The steps are a part of the efforts being taken by the transport minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan to help the KSRTC come out of financial crisis. Such incentives will make the employees more hard working, the minister says.Â Also 10% of the ticket revenue over and above thousand tickets per day, will go to the employees of that bus. However, currently there are very few buses that sell more than 1000 tickets a day.
