Delhi likely to have four-wheeler autos soon

Delhi transport minister  Ramakant Goswami on Wednesday informed that the transport department is considering a proposal to introduce the new Tata four-wheeler autos in the Capital city.

‘The Tata autos are considered safe and secure and would go a long way in bringing down road accidents. The introduction of four-wheeler autos would also bring discipline among auto drivers,’ the minister said.

‘The instances of over-charging/not using metres, refusal to take passengers up to their destinations would be minimised with the introduction of Tata autos,’ Goswami said.

The transport department has been directed to study the technical details of four-wheel autos manufactured by Tata and feasibility of running it in the capital city. The new autos would also be able to carry three passengers and would protect them from heat and rain. Goswami has asked the Department to submit the report within two weeks so that a final decision could be taken immediately.

The minister said all zonal offices of the transport department are being revamped as the city government has decided to involve Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (DSIIDC) in this work.

The revamping would be taken up on war-footing as the visitors in such offices deserve a better environment and amenities such as comfortable waiting place.  With complete refurbishing of all zonal offices, the look and image of Transport Department as well as of Delhi would get substantial

The city government is also considering introduction of more convenient city buses from Sweden, China and Poland under a pilot project.

The DTC is in for strict compliance of speed restrictions of its buses as it is keen to make Delhi roads free of accidents.  For this, DTC has taken some novel steps.
