K’taka makes tracking devices mandatory for transport vehicles

The move is expected to contribute significantly to safety on the highways as the GPS devices will alert the authorities of any overspeeding vehicles.

Briefing the media after the cabinet meeting, state Law Minister J.C. Madhuswamy said that 6.8 lakh vehicles will come under the ambit of the project to be implemented with support of the Central government.

“60 per cent of the funding will be provided by the Central government, and the state government will bear the remaining costs,” Madhuswamy elaborated, adding that one of the aims of the initiative is to curb crimes against women.

Once the project is implemented, the government will centrally monitor the vehicles. This will also enable the government to clamp down on tax evaders and misuse of transport permits, the minister asserted.
