Morning Star is not operating any of their Scania or Volvo Buses.
They had quite a lot of Scanias, not sure what happened to these buses. I have not seen them on the road.

All their Volvo Scania and a pair of Merc 15m are resting in garages in Visakhapatnam, Guntur and some may be in Hyderbad. The buses in vizag haven't come out in last 18 months about 10-12 high end buses are parked here.

Here is the news:
Kerala State Road Transport Corporation, is coming up with Volvo B11R sleeper buses:

The Hindu: KSRTC to procure country’s first indigenously made sleeper buses.
KSRTC to procure country’s first indigenously made sleeper buses

Does this mean Volvo is building sleeper buses in Hoskote factory, with either staff / workers sourced from Veera or Prakash?
Why do they have to source staff from Veera/Prakash? Volvo has their own staff.

So if a customer wants Complete Built unit of Volvo sleeper it will be built and delivered directly by Volvo at hoskete. Option 2 procure chasis and build the body at operators choice at prakash, veera , MG etc am i right?
