It will be used to disinfect people offering essential services 

  • The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) is converting old buses slated to be scrapped into “sanitiser buses” to disinfect people in public places to be called ‘Sarige Sanjeevini’. 
  • Would be operated in city limits for police personnel, health workers, pourakarmikas and others carrying out essential services during the lockdown. 
  • The bus was modified at the central workshop of the KSRTC at a cost of ₹20,000. Modifications include installation of sprinklers. People need to enter from the front door and exit via the rear end to get disinfected.
