On this day 10 years back I started this page out of my sheer excitement travelling in B9R for the first time. This forum has grown huge today. Iam happy to see more people posting their experiences here and also more buses hitting the roads..
Not sure about the count of people and forum members who would be thankful to you for starting this thread. It has been the most popular and engaging thread over the decade, I believe.

Just now AWATAR is updated with the schedules.
2 services are shown, one is regular INR 982 and other is shown as special INR 1283!
I guess Mangalore 2 Depot has rejected to have this bus deployed on Mangalore - Hyderabad and Mangalore-Mumbai due to complaints received for removing ADC on Mangalore - Pune and convert it back to ACC.

Now the Special Service is deleted.

Many people are disappointed with the change in service for Mangalore Pune from Semi Sleeper to Ambari.

Adding to the woes of the passengers, they cancel the Mumbai - Mangalore services at their own whims 1-2 days before the trip. Adding to lack of reliability for anyone to plan their journey on KSRTC. Prefer to book private operators who are more reliable and punctual on this route.

i think it was in 2006 KSRTC started its volvo services. I had the chance to travel in one of their new services between Bangalore and chennai. My first travel in a volvo was in 2003 March with Sharma transports from Pune to Bangalore. Those days they simply let the beast loose as the highways were not so crowded like now. There was a Davanagere based operator called "Mahesh Motors" who were well known for speed. They were covering Davanagere - Mumbai in 16 hours and at crazy speeds. In 2003 sugama transports had volvo service from Bangalore to Mumbai and I have travelled once from Hubli to Mumbai. Mangalore based operators always stood apart for cleanliness, punctuality.

KSRTC started the first Volvo service in late 2002 [not 2006], on the 3 PM Bangalore - Mumbai [Central] Service.
Trial operations were on as early as May 2002 [Trial routes covered even Manipal - Bangalore]; my cousin had traveled in one of the trips. There was a Volvo Engineer / technician on-board the bus.
First set of Volvo bus was delivered to Sharma Transports as they were the providing Office commute to Volvo Staff. Sharma Transports also provided huge concessions to the Volvo Staff to travel in their Inter-city operations even on personal trips [this is first hand information from my ex-office colleague as he had worked at Volvo India].
First schedule on Bangalore-Hyderabad was introduced in early 2003. By 2003; KSRTC was operating Volvo in following routes, apart from the first route:
Bangalore - Mangalore
Bangalore - Bellary
Bangalore - Chennai
Bangalore - Tirupati
Bangalore - Goa

Till 2006; the buses fleet management was maintained by Volvo India. After which it was taken over by KSRTC.

By 2006-07; Volvo buses were in huge number. The Mark 2 KSRTC buses had Lap seat belts. I had traveled wearing them during my Aug 2005 journey.

Congratulations for booking Scania 13.7 m, you are procuring 2 buses. Which route are you planning to deploy?

Except for suggesting the route, I shall answer few of your questions:
Which Chassis?: Ashok Leyland CRS 225
Build: Sleeper [2X1 configuration] or alternatively 1X1 configuration with Maharaja Sleeper berths - 20 berths with sliding cabin [I had traveled way back in 2001 in Ghatge Patil AC Snoozer bus with 20 or 24 berths pretty comfortable. [berth alignment in direction of the bus motion and not perpendicular]]
Child below 10 years - Complimentary travel
Body: Prakash or MG Alma
Website: Abhibus or Bitla Software.
Have Service done at Authorized Service Centers of Ashok Leyland.
Main is to have good Tyres with thread depth.
