The KSRTC will set up the state’s largest registered vehicle scrapping facility (RVSF) in Parassala, according to a report. In addition to Parassala, RVSF will also come up at Edappal, Chittur and Kanhangad.
The state government has appointed KSRTC as the implementing agency to establish and operate RVSF. Their scope of work will include planning, establishing, operating and maintaining RVSF.
As per reports, the firm chosen for the project will run RVSF for a period of 15 years under a public private partnership model. On completion of tenure for 15 years, the firm has to transfer the RVSF centres to KSRTC with all machinery and equipment in good working condition.
Under the public private partnership model, KSRTC will supply electricity and water connection and if needed technicians will be provided. The site to set up collection centres in depots, sub depots, operating centres and five regional workshops shall be provided by KSRTC.
The firm will receive the vehicles surrendered for scrapping, fix the value, hand over the agreed amount and issue certificate of deposit at the collection centres in KSRTC depots. It will also undertake transportation of the collected vehicles, either in full or in knocked down condition to the RVSF.
