In a bid to ensure the safety of passengers, Madhya Pradesh is planning to install tracking devices and panic buttons in all commercial passenger vehicles including buses and taxis. A GPS-based control-cum-command centre would be set up in the state capital-Bhopal to track the real-time location of commercial vehicles.
The panic buttons for emergency situations will be installed in the commercial passenger vehicles. When pressed, the panic button send signals to the command centre so that help can be extended quickly. The move is aimed at ensuring the safety of passengers, especially women.
