The Madras High Court had said that a permanent solution should to be found to save the lives of school-going kids and directed the State government to come up with a rule fixing the criteria and conditions for running of school buses and posted the matter for further hearing on August 9. The Transport Department finalised its recommendations on August 1 after holding detailed discussions with the School Education Department and the Police Department.
