Coimbatore: Lorries will stop running to Kerala indefinitely from July 20 from other States, in view of the abnormal delay in allowing to enter the State at Walayar Checkpost, bordering Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
A lorry has to wait for nearly 10 to 32 hours to get clearance at Walayar causing heavy loss to the operators, G.R. Shanmugayya, President (south), All India Motor Congress (AIMC), said in a release here.
Besides causing financial loss to operators, the goods also could not be delivered in time, resulting in loss to the consignees also, he said.
Though various associations had made representations to Kerala and Centre in this regard, no remedial measures were taken so far and there was no other go but to stop running lorries to Kerala, he said.
At least 2,500 lorries are passing through Walayar, involving goods worth Rs 200 crore, Shanmugayya said.
