New Delhi: Beating its own past records, Delhi Transport Corporation, which runs the world's largest fleet of CNG buses, has posted a new record of revenue collection on Monday.

With ferrying over 48 lakh commuters in a day, the DTC has made a revenue collection of Rs 3.78 crore in a day.

As per the passengers, the schedule of the buses has been improved with the proper stoppages at the allotted bus stands.

Naresh Kumar, CMD, DTC said that he visits office four in the morning for inspection.

He has directed the DTC's Chief General Managers, Depot Managers and Regional Managers to observe the functioning of the bus depot. Kumar has also asked officials to make a plan to increase the number of fleets.
