Wow! The interior is top notch! Gives DC jobs a run for its money!!

Btw, is it just me or the wheels look awfully small for that bus?

That's a top notch quality & deserves 5 star IMO. The only missing that may be is kitchen. Awesome work there.

More pics pls?

Waah! This bus is an absolute drool material. The interiors looks very luxurious and neat too.

Can you please share the details of the engine. And what's the cost of the vehicle?

Count me in! The wheels looks pretty small when contrasted with the size of the bus.

What a bus. Great Interiors. Nice lighting arrangement to say. Kudos to Gurpreet and PBC buses.

One question though, is this being used by any Politician presently?

But hard to believe it would be used for election purpose by top netas Where would all the chamchas (read party workers) fit in? Very strange that the neta would travel with such meagre followers.
Suits IMO for Bollywood stars who need all the fancy stuff and min (read discreet) staff.

Thats a challenge to DC design...
What is the oreginal Bus / Chasi ??
Budget??

Very good design with well space utilisation. i feel its better then DC design.
Must be cheaper then DC.

Any technical update ??

How is the AC working??
Is they install a second engine for this??
I am not sure the bus engine is sufficient for all this facility.

No, no they didn't. They have a 5.5 kva Honda diesel generator. Probably to power all those err.. 'things'.

The rear looks good too, the way the lights are used. The alloy look alike IMHO is an eye sore.

Is it an Alpine HU? Would be great if they could provide details of ICE/public address system used and hows its integrated.

nicely built

front looks a bit drab, dont like the black light surrounds, (personally)
interior is awsome
looks like built on LPT 709 series chasis, or 909

Bullettproofing? Tubeless tyres (for security, not comfort)?

Anti-mine armour?

Netas travelling in this kind of luxury surely will require all the above.

The chassis looks like taken from a 7 to 8 tonner. GC looks inadequate for rural (non)roads.
