On the publication of any scheme in the Official Gazette and in not less than one newspaper in regional language circulating in the area or route which is proposed to be covered by such scheme,-
any person already providing transport facilities by any means along or near the area or route proposed to be covered by the scheme;
any association representing persons interested in the provision of road transport facilities recognised in this behalf by the State Government; and
any local authority or police authority within whose jurisdiction any part of the area or route proposed to be covered by the scheme lies, may, within thirty days from the date of its publication in the Official Gazette, file objections to it before the State Government.]
The State Government may, after considering the objections and after giving an opportunity to the objector or his representatives and the representatives of the State transport undertaking to be heard in the matter, if they so desire, approve or modify the scheme.
The scheme as approved or modified under sub- section (2) shall then be published in the Official Gazette by the State Govern- ment and the same shall thereupon become final and shall be called the approved scheme and the area or route to which it relates shall be called the notified area or notified route: Provided that no such scheme which relates to any inter- State route shall be deemed to be an approved scheme unless it has been published in the Official Gazette with the previous approval of the Central Government.
