Upcoming SETC Depot at Karaikudi

After the implementation of 300+ Km rule by TN government many long run buses especially Chennai routes got transferred to SETC and handled by nearest SETC Depot. As of now SETC have 18 ( 16+2 ) 16 Depots across TamilNadu and 2 Depots in Neighbouring state one in Pondicherry and other in Trivandrum. In this rule many buses runs empty and get some maintenance issues, this leads sometime to improper timings., to overcome the issues and to give better services to public SETC management have come up with new depots at Hosur, Theni, Karaikudi, Nellai 2. Tender has been called for constructing new depots at these places. one of the depots in Karaikudi is getting ready and soon it will be for public use. SETC soon will attach the TNSTC Buses running in this area, already some buses have been taken from TNSTC Pudukottai, Trichy in this area.

One thought on “Upcoming SETC Depot at Karaikudi

  1. Please publish and highlight in your blog

    Dear Sir,

    I am dilip and am a business graduate, working in chennai.
    I belongs to Virudhunagar District.

    The reason to write this letter for provide adequate SETC transportation for our Virudhunagar district.

    In this district, population is growing rapidly and also a lot of industrial centres, , are upcoming in near-future .

    There are three major National Highway routes are passing through in virudhunagar district. But there is no adequate SETC buses for our district.

    We need seperate SETC depot in our district , Virudhunagar is the centre of the district and it is the district head quarters.

    So better setup a seperate depot for our district in virudhunagar.

    From Virudhunagar to sivakasi 25 km on south west direction

    From Virudhunagar to Srivilliputhur 45 km on west direction

    From Virudhunagar to Rajapalayam 55 km on west direction

    From Virudhunagar to sattur 25 km on south direction

    From Virudhunagar to kovilpatti 45 km on south direction

    From Virudhunagar to Aruppukottai 17 km on east direction

    From Virudhunagar to Kamuthi 52 km on east direction

    From Virudhunagar to Watrap 45 km on North west direction

    Apart from there are some more reason to set SETC Depot in Virudhunagar

    they are SIPCOT virudhunagar SEZ coming soon

    and Virudhunagar District is the Industrial Centre of southern tamilnadu.

    People in our district are getting struggle to get seats in buses which are coming from Thirunelveli, Nagercoil, Marthandam, Thiruvanathapuram, Tuticourin, Thiruchendur and sencottah. they are not prefer to allow .

    So we want seperate depot in VIRUDHU NAGAR. from here SETC can opearate long distance buses for rajapalayam, srivilliputhur, sivakasi, satur, kovilpatti, aruppukottai, kamuthi, sayalkudi, kariyapatti, thiruchuzhi, and all major spots of our district.

    And one important point is Depot Space is readily available in Virudhunagar. that is our useless VIRUDHUNAGAR NEW BUS STAND.

    So do the needful for us and it may very helpful to our district people

    Our longer dream will become true in your hand

    Thank You.
