After building buses at its own facilities ever since its inception, the Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has finally wound up that business and is now getting their bus bodies built by external manufacturers. The latest 100 buses procured by the corporation had bodies built by Kondody Autocraft of Kottayam, the only AIS-052 certified bus body builder in Kerala on standard Ashok Leyland chassis. The “Kondody body” bus design is already famous across central and southern Kerala as the most private buses are built on this platform. The new “Kondody” buses from KSRTC are infinitely of better looks and quality than the older boxy shapes. And they are quote comfortable and fast too.
