Abhay Damle, Joint Secretary (Transport), Ministry of Road Transport & Highways in his Special address, said at the seminar, “We need to reduce our dependence on private vehicles”. Citing a report by an international expert, and stressing the rising importance of shared mobility, he said, “Within four to five years the concept of personal car owners will disappear. The entire eco-system of taxis is becoming more efficient. It is providing a wholesome experience today. We have to remember that technology cannot be regulated in real-time. While taking decisions to cap the licenses for auto rickshaws and taxis, the state has to keep in mind that shared mobility leads to less congestion, more employment and less pollution”.
Damle emphasized the need to carry more passengers per square feet of roads in order to make utilization of roads more effective.
Praising the shows, he said, “These are very important forums for exchange and flow of knowledge to the practical side. There is a progressive approach in traffic and transport sectors today and a lot of new things regarding these were visible at the show”.
