Bharath Selvan has now been posted as Chief Executive Officer, Zilla Panchayath, Gadag. Smt. Priyanga M (IAS KN:2017) has been posted as NWKRTC MD with immediate effect.

The move has come as a shocker to the North Karnataka people as he is known to be citizen-friendly and has implemented many useful reforms in the NWKRTC.

During his tenure, he revolutionised the way people buy bus tickets in NWKRTC buses. He was instrumental in introducing UPI Payment as a mode to buy bus tickets.

Bharath pioneered accepting UPI payments in the buses operated by Hubballi Mofussil-3 depot as a pilot project. The move eased the way people buy tickets in the buses.

The move quickly gained traction as more than 6000+ transactions were done in just 20 days. NWKRTC selected the Hubballi M-3 depot as it had a better-trained crew and high-value tickets.

Encouraged by the positive response, NWKRTC MD Bharath Selvan extended the facility to all 6 districts under the jurisdiction of NWKRTC making it the first RTC to accept UPI throughout its jurisdiction.

Under his leadership, NWKRTC floated a tender to purchase 4 ultra luxurious Ambari Utsav like Volvo 9600 series sleeper buses and 20 Pallakki non-AC sleeper buses.
