Kailash Gahlot, Delhi’s new transport minister ( DTC buses ) wants the focus on expanding the city’s bus column and asked transport officials to begin work on fresh tenders for anouncement of buses. This is a policy shift from his predecessor Satyendar Jain.
Gazing at an open transport framework very nearly a fall, the government has chosen to return the attention on streamlining the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC buses) operations. Holding marathon gatherings with organizations since Monday, Delhi transport serve Kailash Gahlot has made it clear that the attention ought to be on enlarging the city’s transport armada and requested that vehicle authorities start take a shot at new tenders for obtainment of transports, sources said.
Kailash gahlot -who succeeded Satyendar Jain as transport minister after jain, said he would soon make an announcement on the steps being taken by him to improve the city’s transport system. “Buses are a priority and I have already had over three meetings with DTC, DIMTS and the transport department. I will make an announcement in the next two-three days on all the issues,” he said.
The move is gone for resuscitating the DTC which is confronted with the issue of a maturing transport armada. While it is ordered to have 5,500 transports, the company has just around 3,780. This is going to radically descend in the following five years as 3,093 of the transports are four-six years of age, while the age of a low-floor transport is around 10 years.
Gahlot’s headings accept noteworthiness as all tasks arranged under previous clergyman Satyendar Jain went to the Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System (DIMTS) Limited. It made specialists think about whether the DTC would be rendered old throughout the years. Prior, Jain returned no less than 11 proposition of the DTC for getting new transports and rather pushed for acquainting smaller than expected and midi transports with oblige region particular group.
The vehicle office will now need to set crisp due dates for development of 11 terminals. The tasks have been mulling for more than five years are still a long way from being done.
There are more than 43 stops in Delhi where the aggregate armada of 57,00 transports is stopped. “Consistent status report of the stops must be submitted from now,” another authority said
