Description for case is given below :
This case describes the restructuring initiatives undertaken at Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC) and the impediments faced by the managing director. As a consequence of partial sectorial deregulation, GSRTC faced mounting losses due to the activities of stage carriage as well as contract carriage operators from the private sector. The financial health of the corporation was further compromised by the state’s taxation policies and restrictions on acquisition of manpower and capital items. The corporation faced a situation where it had a fleet of over-aged, fuel inefficient buses prone to breakdowns, coupled with depleting relevant resources, such as bus drivers. To break out of the vicious downward cycle, the managing director initiated a series of steps aimed at revitalizing the corporation. His initiatives to obtain an operating profit and, then, a net profit were interpreted differently by the trade unions. They took a belligerent stand for wage revision and threatened service disruption. The disruption of an essential service guaranteed by the state eventually led to intervention by the state’s chief minister in favour of wage revision. The additional wage burden made the projections for a possible turnaround go awry. Given the added constraints and a stretched resource position, how would the managing director re-initiate change and restructure the organization?
