Himachal Government Annoys Tourists

In a story that seems to be a pointless drive by authorities of Himachal Government, they have left hundreds of tourists stranded on the road for many hours.

According to the story, the private run buses from Manali to Delhi that the tourists had booked did not have valid permits, and passengers were made to disembark and wait for many hours in the small hours of the morning until alternate buses were provided.

What really irritates me is that the tourists are made to suffer for a mistake that is not their own. Are they expected to check detailed permits and licenses of their buses, trains, or flights when they book their tickets? If the bus company has indeed erred, they could be fined, or the buses could be detained sometime at the end of journey, but not in the middle of the road making many tourists stranded for no fault of theirs. Especially in a state that earns a lot of its income from tourism, it is like shooting yourself on the feet.

The responses from annoyed tourists in the bus too was in similar lines, and one person swore never to revisit Himachal again. I hope the authorities are listening.

I'd like to share a similar incident. Happened a few years back while I was coming back from Dharamshala to Delhi by some 'Bedi Travels" 2x2 seater deluxe coach. We were stopped at Karnal by the Haryana toll authorities and it came to light that the bus operator had'nt been paying the Haryana state road-tax since -- (must have been a few mnths)... Now, for him not paying the taxes the bus was made to park for a good 2 hrs while the driver went to visit the local beat-office....All this in the middle of the night, in the midde of the highway, and in the middle of a place swarming with that was hell!! And all this while the pax had no clue as to where the driver was or when was he to return.. When he did finally return he told us that he had to bribe the officials and that to bribe them (whenever they happened to get caught) was a more economical option for the bus-operator than to pay the road-taxes due on him... Such are the state of affairs
