Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh's new Transport Policy was endorsed by the state Cabinet in a meeting presided over by the state Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan here on Monday.

Under the policy, District Transport Authorities will be established on the lines of State Transport Authority and Regional Transport Authority. The committee headed by the district collector will issue permits and determine routes in the district, said an official Press release.

The District Transport Authority will issue permits as per local requirements after scrutinising the applications for bus permit. The permits for inter-district and inter-division routes will be issued by the State Transport Authority. The arrangements at State and Regional Transport Authorities will be fully computerised. The age limit of passenger buses will be incorporated in the permit terms and conditions. This age limit will be ten years for inter-state routes and 15 years for intra-state routes. Bus fares will be determined annually on regular basis which will help not only in protection of passengers' rights but also in smooth conduct of transport services on professional basis. The transport sources on various routes will be identified and large buses will be promoted for long routes.

Under the new Transport Policy, public transport sources will be promoted and arrangement of buses will be made for all the regions especially. Effective control will be exercised on goods transport also. Constant development and construction of national and state highways and district routes will undertaken which will ensure transport in every region. Top priority will be given to measures to increase safety of life and property of passengers and preventing accidents.

Under the policy, the Open Permit System will continue for running buses inside the state with necessary controls. A healthy competition will be promoted among the bus operators and quality of transport sources being used by private operators will be ensured. With a view to preventing monopoly of any person, institution and company, more than 50 percent permits will not issued to a single party or his relatives.

Besides, the new policy incorporates the provisions of complete winding up of Road Transport Corporation. The process of terminating services of the rest of the employees of the corporation will be ensured while considering the interests of all those concerned. Proper alternative arrangements will also be made before abolishing inter-state bus routes.

In the urban areas, every possible efforts will be undertaken to implement Bus Rapid Transport System in big cities. CNG and LPG-based transport will be determined in the metro cities with a view to lessening pollution.

The policy incorporates provisions of lessening road accidents also. The process of issuing driving licences will be tightened up and Licence Board will be abolished. Fitness checking system will be streamlined and made effective. Trauma centres will be set up on state routes. Services for taking accident victims to the trauma centres will be ensured with the cooperation of 108 ambulance network.

Provisions have also been made in the new Transport Policy for development of transport infrastructure, strengthening revenue collection and taxation system, introducing modern techniques and providing alternative transport arrangements.
