Mumbai autos and taxis will now get QR codes
In a bid to improve safety of passengers using mobile aggregators, black and yellow cabs and auto rickshaws, the government and police are working the concept of having QR code/RFID in these vehicles, which earlier was supposed to be fitted in CNG tanks. This is a part of ensuring safety of passengers especially women using them.
The state government authorities including agencies like Traffic Police, Transport department and other stakeholders are working towards improving the safety system that shall be easy to access for the passengers at times of emergency. Authorities are currently working on details such as kind of safety system, emergency number that it shall be connected to, working of this feature in multiple cases etc. A welcome move.
