Standard practice in rural areas. It's a commn mode of transportation for them.

Also, just in case you havent come across this, you can find long distance buses with a 6 seat rows. Works like this: the bus is built & registered as a 51 seater (2 + 3 in each row = 5 seats x 10 rows = 50 seats. Last row has 6 seats already, so registered capacity of the bus is 51. Now, during peak season, the busses also carry about 10 plastic stools. One stool is added to each row in the passage, thus increasing the seating capacity to 60 - 61. Voila - as people come in, they are given a stool each to be placed in the aisle, and they get their own 'reserved' seat !

Have seen this in Guj / Rajasthan etc. Not so much in the south.

Cheaper means of transportation. Often used for piligrimages etc., when they feel hiring a bus is expensive.

I agree...the necessity is a cheap, but fast means of transport, and these trucks probably fit the bill...they are better than bullock carts and things as such...

@SirAlec, both are common sights and with often-valid reasons. The wrong side drive is possibly because the other side is under construction.

The jeep's meant for processions. It's not a daily ride to qualify as a whacky mod.
