Installation of the global positioning system (GPS) will be made mandatory for all commercial transport vehicles in the State by this year-end to bring in transparency.
Come April 1, 2018, the Centre will make it mandatory for all public service vehicles — including buses and taxis — to have a location-tracking device and one or more emergency buttons to alert authorities in an emergency. However, the Centre has decided against making the installation of CCTV cameras mandatory, citing privacy concerns.
The Government of India has issued a draft notification for making the installation of location tracking devices, CCTV systems and alert buttons on all transport vehicles compulsory. The GPS tracking, cameras and one or more panic button will have to be fitted by the manufacturer, dealer or the operator of the vehicle.
