Two bus stops in Kalam­boli seem to have van­ished into thin air re­cently.

No­body, in­clud­ing the au­thor­i­ties, seem to have any clue about it. Up­set pas­sen­gers have de­manded that the bus stops be re­stored im­me­di­ately.

The bus stops are lo­cated op­po­site Ma­tra­ch­haya So­ci­ety and HDFC bank. The bus stops are of NMMT bus route 56 that runs from Kalam­boli po­lice head­quar­ters to Mansarovar. Since there are no other bus stops close by, the pas­sen­gers are hav­ing a tough time.

Mangesh De­sai, a pas­sen­ger, said: “We called Asudgaon bus de­pot, but they had no ex­pla­na­tion. We were told that NMMT has a dif­fer­ent depart­ment for bus stops.”

The se­nior ci­ti­zen as­so­ci­a­tion of the node has col­lected sig­na­tures of around 100 se­nior cit­i­zens de­mand­ing the bus stops again. All In­dia pas­sen­ger as­so­ci­a­tion has ini­ti­ated a sig­na­ture cam­paign. The lo­cal unit of NCP too has writ­ten to NMMT claim­ing it is in­jus­tice to the lo­cal res­i­dents.

NMMT gen­eral man­ager Shirish Arad­wad said, “I will look into de­tails and then take req­ui­site ac­tion if re­quired.”
