Prototype buses were built by TNSTC Karur Manmangalam unit based on prototype TNSTC Tiruppur has built new buses.

Neat Finishing in front profile
Seats gap have been increased and easy accessible.
Seats Quality is improved from the past.

Air Ventilation on top is missing need 3 ventilation to overcome our climatic conditions.
Seats near rear emergency exits should be removed for easy access.

overall a good finish from the past still new buses on way so our units will make attention more on bus building.
