But from the third fourth day till date, though showing pre paid pass, seeing they do not carry electronic machine. I agree to pay cash some time with Rs.10, 20, 50 or 100 rupees note as every day it is not possible for me to arrange Rs.10 or 8 note/coins cash (one time Rs. 10 i.e. from SK Patil to GPO & Rs.8 from GPO Malhbotra House to Thakurdwar), seeing this a quarrel between me and bus conductors are heated over exact change, my above showing pre passed in totally ignored by them and they say it not our problem tell the depot or the best authorities, but give exact change.

I, today was actually not carrying any change either coins or notes. so i said I too do not have change to pay in cash. he argued asked me to get down from the bus with rough and toug
