In addition, interested candidates aspiring to become contractual drivers can contact the assistant regional manager’s offices of these depots to submit their application forms. Selected candidates will receive a fixed amount based on kilometres driven, along with additional incentives.

According to UPSRTC’s Lucknow region manager RK Tripathi, individuals selected as contractual drivers will be compensated at a rate of Rs 1.89 per kilometre. Additionally, upon completing duty for 22 days and covering 5,000 kilometres, they will receive Rs 3,000 as incentive.

Furthermore, upon fulfilling the stipulated two-year service requirement, individuals will receive a fixed amount of Rs 19,593, including allowances and incentives, for the excellent category, and those coming under the good category will receive a fixed amount of Rs 16,593, including allowances and incentives.

The transport corporation has also set minimum qualifications for recruiting contractual drivers. Accordingly, only candidates with a height of 5 feet 3 inches or more will be eligible to apply for the position of contractual driver. Besides, the candidates must be at least 23 years and 6 months of age or more, as per the specified qualification criteria.
