More than a dozen buses operated by private owners plying without valid documents were impounded by the Gautam Buddh Nagar police on Thursday, officials said.
The action was taken during a concerted campaign, 'Operation Clean', from 5 pm to 8 pm across Noida and Greater Noida where 80 privately-operated buses were inspected for documents, they said.
Major focus of the campaign was to check illegal plying of buses at crucial junctures like Sector 37, under Sector 39 police station limits, and Pari Chowk, under Beta 2 police station limits, which have become illegal waiting points for the buses, a senior official said.
"Eighty buses were held up for inspection -- 14 of them in Pari Chowk in Greater Noida and 66 in Sector 37. The 14 in Pari Chowk have been impounded, while for those in Noida, their operators have sought some time to produce the documents and some time has been given to them," Senior Superintendent of Police, Gautam Buddh Nagar, Vaibhav Krishna said.
"This action has been taken to ensure hassle-free traffic movement. Also, there have been some complaints about passengers being duped and looted while travelling at night in private buses," he said.
Asked about the problems faced by passengers of these "illegally plying" buses, the district police chief told PTI, "We had coordinated with the roadways (the state transport department) and 50 buses were roped in to help the passengers reach their destination.
