A few days back I saw a report in The Hindu  on 12th May 2017 and reported the same to Government of Tamil Nadu. The text of the report/petition is as below.

Dear Team, The following article on The Hindu today illustrates the sorry state of MTC Bus Stop in Sembakkam. In the absence of a shelter at an MTC bus stop in Sembakkam, commuters have no other option but to brave the blazing sun. A good number of commuters wait at this stop as important route numbers such as 95 (East Tambaram to Thiruvaniyur); 99 (Adyar to West Tambaram); B51 (East Tambaram to T. Nagar); and 5A (East Tambaram to T. Nagar via Pallikaranai) plying through Velachery Main Road, halt here. Commuters could be found taking shelter at nearby commercial establishments and under a thaneer pandhal set up by members of a fan club of film actor Vijay. “It is a long wait in the afternoon hours when the frequency of the buses is low. What annoys us most is that many MTC drivers skip the stop though all route numbers are supposed to here. Unless commuters signal to them, the drivers do not halt,”says R. Shantha Thiagarajan, a commuter. As a result, many commuters walk up to the bus stop at Kamarajapuram or Santhosapuram, which are both two kilometres away. Thanks, Deepak Vasudevan

The response is still awaited from the competent authorities and the core summer itself is complete now.
