Chand Heads Bus Body

While the appointment of newly-elected president of the Fiji Bus Operators Association, Parmod Chand came as no surprise, he has placed some very practical terms once in office.

“First on my agenda is e-ticketing, second is this RSL and third is to work with Government and make this industry a viable industry.

“We are looking forward for the co-operation and connectivity of the Government and the Fiji Bus Operators Association.”

It is understood the e-ticketing issue is now being handled by the Ministry of Communications and no pressing issue was raised on the topic at the convention.

During his speech, Mr Chand, who owns Parmod Enterprises Limited operating in Labasa assured members an open-door policy.

“I will always be available to speak with any of you. I will listen and assure you that your grievances will be heard.”

And where action is necessary, it would also be given due diligence.

There are 50 bus companies registered with the association out of 64 companies altogether in the country.

The association’s constitution is such that there are two vice president- one senior, the other a junior.

Once election is up, the senior vice president automatically becomes president and continues to serve on the board for two consecutive years in his role.

When his term ends, the president steps down and becomes an executive member.  The senior becomes the president and the junior is now a senior president.

The rotation continues.
