The old bus-stand in Ponda happens to be a strategic location where a large number of commuters wait for buses during major part of the day. However in comparison to the large number of people occupying these premises on regular basis, there are only two bus shelters where commuters are able to relax a bit while waiting for buses. 

In the absence of adequate bus shelters, many of them occupy the open area amidst soaring heat, more so at noon. Some commuters occupy the entrance area of nearby shops and such a practice turns inconvenient for shopkeepers as their customers are unable to get proper access in entering the shops. Hence sale of materials at these shops get affected to a great extent. 

Considering the ever-increasing number of commuters at this important bus stand, it would be appropriate for the concerned authorities to provide additional bus shelters at these premises so that commuters can occupy the same while waiting for buses. 

Such a favourable step would ultimately bring great relief to them on a permanent basis. Let us hope that the concerned authorities would consider the sorry plight of innocent customers and initiate prompt positive steps in this direction at the earliest. Such a timely step would indeed be appreciated by one and all.
