Chief Minister said that e-Parivahan has emerged a game changer in providing best services to the people of the State. He said that stress must be laid on educating the people to avail this facility. He said
“The success of this system would largely depend on how better and easily the people adopt this service.”
Jai Ram Thakur said that the ever-increasing number of vehicles in the State, as well as the country, has forced the planners to rethink traffic management and traffic registration in the country. He said that an integrated road accident database would be implemented by the NIC. He said this was a web-based IT solution that would enable various agencies such as police, transport, PWD etc. to enter details of road accidents from a different perspective such as road engineering, vehicle conditions etc.
Transport Minister Bikram Singh Thakur said that two Pilot Projects were introduced in Shimla and Kangra districts and after rectifying the deficiencies this system was today implemented in the entire State. The Minister hoped that the facility would go a long way in providing people of the State better and prompt transport services to people of the State.
