    Toll no. Is there,who will answer the will be another dead number

  2. Sachin says:

    @Rajendran has raised a valid question.
    Perhaps going by past track record, it may work for a few weeks or months?
    Perhaps, it awaits the same fate as Mysore City bus service (ITS/Mitra), GPS, electronic board numbers, scheduled arrival times at bus stops facility etc?
    Everybody including the citizens will forget about it.
    Has anyone tried the numbers of the past toll free numbers introduced by the state in the last couple of years?

    Hey Sachin
    Were you not listing a number of questions, thinking that you were the only one who could ask them? Just 2 questions, which you can answer, if you are smart, and to prove so!

  5. Gusto says:

    Where are your list of questions @Sachin, instead of those three? Have you tried those toll free numbers? If so, why don’t you share your experience instead of asking a mere question.
    As a poster above, you are a typical third world Mysorean, moaning and groaning, instead of doing something practical to fix the problems, working with your MP Simha!
