They charged me 20 INR just to keep my small box in the luggage compartment. The drop point is different from what is mentioned in the booking. The bus need pest control. I could not sleep because of insects biting throughout night.
I was travelling from Pune to Kumta and return after few days in this month. The buses were not arrived at scheduled spots in time. The quality of the buses were also up to the mark. The quality of woolen bed sheets were not cleaned and while return journey it was used by someone.
