Raksha Bandhan is being celebrated on August 26 this year.

The Uttarakhand Transport Corporation, too, will provide free rides to women in its buses on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan.

The facility is being provided to women in Uttarakhand on the orders of Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, an official release here said.
