IN SERVICE, SINCE 1963

1.0 Historical Background

1.1 With the growth of industrial activities in Durgapur, Government of West Bengal decided to provide an economic, adequate and efficient road transport service to the people of Durgapur industrial township complex. With the avowed objectives, the Government started a state transport service on 1st August 1963 with a fleet of 8 buses as a Departmental Undertaking under the direct control of its Home Department. Initially, transport services were operated only in the township covering a total route length of 65 km. In 1964-65, the fleet strength increased to 25 with a total operating route length of 102 km.

 

1.2 In 1965-66, long distance mofussil services were first introduced covering total route length of 428 km. and the fleet strength increased to 62 buses. On 15th Aug.1967, the Departmental Undertaking was converted into "Durgapur State Transport Board (DSTB)". The Commissioner of Burdwan was made Ex.-official Chairman of the Board.

 

1.3 In 1968-69, DSTB extended its activities through augmentation of fleet strength of 100 buses operating in 11 long distance routes and 8 township routes covering a total route length of 1200 km and 176 km respectively.

 

1.4 In 72-73, Durgapur-Siliguri bus service (550 km. one way) was introduced with 3 new town services and the total route length of long distance and town services went up to 1650 km and 143 km respectively.

 

1.5 In 1973, DSTB was ultimately converted into a public sector undertaking under the name and style of " Durgapur State Transport Corporation" with effect from 7th December 1973 vide Government of W.B. notification dated 04.12. 73. At that time, the fleet strength of the Corporation was 120 with 874 employees on its roll. Subsequently, many new routes viz.
