The AAP government has ultimately approved the installation of a mandatory GPS on all the public transport vehicles. This will be in effect from June 01, 2015 according to their senior official.
This decision comes after many months as the transport department had been extending the deadline for having mandatory GPS installed in public vehicles. It announced that all passenger vehicles will need it in order to get their fitness certificates renewed.
"After June 1, no commercial or passenger vehicle will be allowed a fitness certificate if it doesn't have a GPS device" |
The transport department had, in fact, made it mandatory for all autorickshaws last year to install GPS in order to get their annual fitness certificate. It had later expanded that ambit to cover taxis and gramin sewa.
