The Kerala State Road Transport Cooperation (KSRTC) is planning to reduce its night services as the government imposing a night curfew. Reportedly, no decision has been made regarding the number of services that will be suspended.

The number of buses working within the district will be reduced. According to reports, long-distance services will not be reduced. The KSRTC will seek permission for the implementation of the decision.

According to reports, CMD Biju Prabhakar hinted that the non-reservation services will be reduced and services after 9 pm will be based on reservation. The proposal will be informed to the Chief Secretary.

It is important to note that the services are not even enough for the commuters even during the daytime. As the government is imposing more restrictions, passengers will find it difficult to reach their homes amidst the pandemic crisis.

Meanwhile, India recorded more than 2,000 Covid-19 deaths and around 3,00,000 new cases marking the world's biggest daily spike since the outbreak of the pandemic. In 24 hours, the Health Ministry figures showed 2,95,000 cases while the country's total death toll reaches 1,82,553.

According to ICMR, 27,10,53,392 samples have been tested till April 20 with 16,39,357 samples being tested on Tuesday.
