New Delhi, October 1: The Central government is planning to build busports with modern facilities across India. The government is undertaking a pilot project of building one bus port in each state. These busports will have advance facilities just like airports. Later, state governments will construct bus ports in different cities. According to new directives of the government, busport will be based on Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) or Hybrid Annuity Model (HAM).

As per the report published in Dainik Jagran, those states which are willing to construct these busports will have to choose a location for the project and form a nodal agency. Busports will be open to both public and private bus operators. The Central government will then begin pre-feasibility research after which a report will be prepared. In the end, the government will give a contract to a company to construct these bus ports. Janakpur to Ayodhya Bus Service: Yogi Adityanath Welcomes First Bus From Sita’s Birthplace

According to the report, around 2,000 busports will be constructed in the country. Government-Run Indian Airports To Have Cheaper Snacks With Separate Counters Offering Tea, Food Items at MRP!
