Delhi signs new transport pact to ensure seamless movement

The Delhi government has signed the Revised Reciprocal Common Transport Agreement (RCTA) with the states of Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh to ensure seamless movement by public transport and paratransit vehicles.

The agreement ensures seamless movement by public transport and paratransit vehicles.

Principal secretary-cum-transport commissioner, Ashish Kundra, said an attempt had been made to harmonise the transport regime in the National Capital Region (NCR).

He told the media that taxation uniformity would be ensured, while Delhi already has zero passenger tax on buses. A seamless public transport would be encouraged across Delhi NCR.

He said that Delhi has also pointed out that other states should switch to clean fuels like compressed natural gas (CNG).

Kundra said that the districts bordering Delhi could do it in three years and the rest in the next seven years. It has been decided that all the constituent states and other stakeholders would set up more electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and CNG stations.

RCTA will be valid for the next ten years or till a new agreement is signed, which states that only vehicles complying with prevailing emission norms or those at the time of registration, whichever is later, can ply in Delhi NCR.

Vehicles such as autos, cabs, taxis and buses registered in NCR and across the borders will be given a particular colour code and logo for easy recognition. The states will also take the initiative to digitise the database of drivers, vehicle registration and other information in the NCR.
