CHANDIGARH: In a new year bonanza for girl students in Haryana, the state government will provide free travel facility to them in the state owned buses.
Free passes will be issued to all the girls of Haryana studying in various schools, colleges and institutes in the state and are recognised by the state government or are affiliated with any University or Board in the state, transport minister Aftab Ahmed said here today.
Haryana is infamous for its skewed sex ratio. However, students of distance learning mode will not be get the benefit of the scheme.

Make sure that the bus driver has been properly investigated for previous criminal offenses. I am concerned for the safety of these girls. With the increase in violence against women and girls in India, one must be careful. It will be best to have a women bus driver. Safety is most important.
