Some buses lack fire safety measures as many of them had obsolete fire extinguishers. On the basis of guidelines, there should be horizontal grilles in school bus windows which was found missing in most of the buses. In addition to this, buses also lack proper first aid boxes and name of the school.

According to the recent additions in the guidelines, every school bus compulsorily install CCTV cameras and GPS and provide space for kids to keep school bags. But none of the drivers were found to be following guidelines and no appropriate action is taken against them.
