Jamshedpur, July 21: A K Srivastava, president, Jamshedpur Citizen Forum, in a letter to Jayant Sinha, Minister of Civil Aviation, Independent Charge, Government of India, has urged to start bus services from Ranchi Airport to Jamshedpur and from Jamshedpur to Ranchi Airport for the passengers of Jamshedpur area so that they can easily go various places by saving their precious time and that too with cheaper fare of transportation.

Srivastava, who is also a trustee of Adityapur Small Industries Association (ASIA) and Singbhum Chamber of Commerce and Industries (SCCI), suggested that Airport Authority may open an office at Jamshedpur for passenger checking facility to carry their luggage also.

According to letter, ‘I am pleased to bring your kind attention towards the Bus Service (Volvo Bus) which has been started by Tata Steel for their employees to catch flights from Birsa Munda Airport, Ranchi. Only one bus has been given by them Jamshedpur to Ranchi and Ranchi to Jamshedpur (a news related to this has been published in local newspaper which is enclosed for your reference).

The only airport in Jharkhand is Ranchi 130 km away and the condition of road from Jamshedpur to Ranchi is not good and people who are willing to go anywhere they have to go by their own car or by hiring a car in both these cases the amount which they are paying for up and down is the amount more than the fare they are going to limited place from Ranchi. The condition of road is very bad and in this condition it will take minimum 3 hours to negotiate the distance.

Airport Authority should think of starting bus services from Ranchi airport to Jamshedpur and from Jamshedpur to Ranchi Airport for the passengers of Jamshedpur area so that they can easily go various places by saving their precious time and that too with cheaper fare of transportation.

“I will further suggest that Airport Authority may open an office at Jamshedpur for passenger checking facility to carry their luggage also. Only security check may be done at Airport. By taking this step the numbers of passengers will increase and it will be cheaper for passengers going to different places from Ranchi Airport.”
