As, GSRTC offers passenger transport services, the efficiency lies in providing qualitative services in terms of safety and punctuality. The prime resource of GSRTC is its buses, so the proper upkeep and effective utilization of vehicles and efficiency in operations will increase revenue and control the cost of operations. Unfortunately, more than 52 per cent (as on 31st March 2008) of the fleet owned by GSRTC are over aged and due for replacement. However, scarcity of funds restricted the replacement of these vehicles. Aged fleet needs more resources (man and material) to operate, slow down operations due to frequent break-downs and reduced trips than planned. Consequently, number of passengers and employee and vehicle utilization goes down and as such, increased cost of operations and decreased profit together contributes to financial weakness of GSRTC. The GSRTC will have to compete with the private sector even though the former may continue to play a dominant role in terms of social obligations. The research is focused on financial analysis Gujarat State Road Transport. The research has its own findings and ended with fruitful suggestions.
