Committee to prepare policy framework for taxi operators

Ministry of Road Transport and Highways on Tuesday has set up a three-member committee to prepare a policy framework for taxi and other transport operators.

The panel will be headed by Sanjay Mitra, Secretary, Ministry of Road Transport & Highways and have the Joint Secretary, Ministry of Road Transport & Highways and the Delhi Transport Commissioner as its members.

A group of taxi and other transport operators had met Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari on Monday, apprising him of the situation that has emerged following the Supreme Court’s order banning diesel taxis in the NCR, and the various problems they are facing as a result of the ban.

The Ministry has decided to set up a committee to look into these issues and come up with appropriate policy recommendations to address the same in a time-bound manner, said the statement, issued by the ministry.
