Is there a 20.16 from Eicher. I do not see it listed in VECV website. I can only see 20.15 listed

Are there any Eicher buses operating as stage carriers in TN? I have seen eicher being used as Company buses operated by Parveen in chennai.

Yet an another spelling mistake. Thanks for highlighting the same.
Eicher 20.15 is operated by Deenadayalan Transports running in Trichy - Tiruppattur - Pudukottai route.

Parveen is the largest Private fleet owner of Eicher in India.

Though off topic, just wanted to add a piece of information.
When Eicher lauched their heavy duty buses, Parveen took mainly for ferrying employees (under contract) and ST (operator based on Coimbatore) took for route 32 city operation and it was first of it's kind in India, those buses were even displayed at the auto expo held in Coimbatore during 2000/01.

Thanks for the caution ramzsys. I could use feedback from fellow bhpians like you. GPS is not yet installed so am not able to get speedo and tachometer reports. I shall rein them in.

Please start an ownership thread. We had one for AL, it will be good to have a Tata also. I am sure this will give insight to an owners mind, and will help immensely people who are trying to enter this business. in the future.
By the way, the bus looks excellent. I have not seen any bus interior this good, looks very roomy.

You are entitled to your opinion. No issues. Thank you for the wishes.

I will start an ownership thread however I am afraid there will not be many participants.
If we have adequate numbers then why not?

Yes. Indeed it is.

I think 2 is provided for both aesthetic as well as practicality as these ladders will be used by cleaners to to reach and clean the vehicle. On the same note does the bus body-builder provide another ladder (with rubber bushes to rest on) for cleaning as part of the deal. I have seen these ladders provided for Volvo used by Omni bus operators to clean the bus.

I can see that you retained original tail light from chasis in your bus. This is the best part, I found in your bus and it shows your interest towards safety.

These lights last long and has sufficient illumination for rear traffic. Aftermarket rear lights would not last long and gave way in usage of few months. Please during all service check all lights functioning including indicators.
