The sanctioned Strength of drivers for Kollam City and Kollam Rural is only 97. There are only 89 drivers available and a total vacancy of 8 exists. Due to the shortage of drivers, much difficulty is being experienced. The vacancies of drivers are to be filled immediately. Recently more vehicles have been allotted to this unit. The sanctioned strength of drivers is not enough to cop with the number of vehicles. Hence more than one vehicle is given under the charge of one driver at AR Headquarters. Action is to be taken to enhance the strength of drivers.
