You won Oxy!
Apart from the Date arguments, I stand by the rest.

BTW, can someone confirm whether the regular "Red Bus" monthly passes has the same feature.

For the knowledge of Non-Bangalorean TBHPians: BMTC also offer Free Travel in City Services Passengers with advance reservation tickets with KSRTC are allowed free travel in the city services within 2 hours before departure time of service

So, seems like the first bus conductor indeed try to con and that is why the other conductor didnt ask anything after seeing the pass

I love a happy ending!

So it's now clear:
  1. OP (Oxy) was correct, albeit unwittingly so
  2. First BMTC conductor was a crook
  3. Second BMTC conductor was doing his job correctly
  4. BMTC policy of issuing next-month pass is not silly (as I'd assumed) since the passes are in fact valid from the issue date
  5. Knowledge of local language does help immensely in any situation

Thanks guys. A happy ending indeed.

And it feels great now that I am not guilty of ticketless travel.

By the way, does this now mean that from 28th to 31st of the month, both the current month's and the next month's passes are valid?
