The government transport department of NCT Delhi is an entrusted department responsible for running the public transportation system efficiently. It controls various roles such as vehicular pollution, the vehicle registration process in Delhi, permitting insurance, collecting road taxes. The department is also assigned the services such as regulation and monitoring functions of all transport-related issues, implementation, coordination, and policymaking. It takes care of all the transport systems in the state capital except the railways. The roadways are totally maintained by the transport department of Delhi.
New launched mandates
The Delhi Transport Department has banned the Bharat stage 3 complaints of two-wheelers in Delhi. After lifting the complaint two-wheelers that came into action before April 2016 are eligible to get sold in the NCR region. The ban has put a break to the bike manufacturers such as Bajaj Auto, Royal Enfield, and Suzuki, as they have launched their product in India recently this year.
The unparallel complaint on banning such two-wheelers has ensured that certain companies are barred from registration. But the ban has imposed a new rule which stated that the recently launched bikes or scooters need to register with the BS-IV rules, although an order was previously announced that two-wheelers would be allowed to register and sell their products in the market.
After going through chaotic circumstances the Delhi government has finally settled down to bring back the electronic rickshaws into service to the public. The government has already registered two models of such e-rickshaws out of 7 models that have been approved. The minister of transport, Gopal Rai declared that once the dealers are appointed for sailing e-rickshaws then those who are interested can buy new vehicles for registration and use them for public transport means. For this, Loans have been already provided by the Delhi finance cooperation.
Moreover, the Delhi Transport Department has made the installation of GPS (global positioning system) mandatory for all public transport systems. The government would deny fitness certificates to all those who would not follow such rules. One of the government officials announced that the GP system is now compulsory for all public transport vehicles such as taxis, DTC buses, and auto rickshaws. Strict actions would be taken against those who will violate the mandate. If anybody such vehicle is caught without GPS then for the first time they would be given a chance to install the system onto their vehicle.
