Chandigarh Administration to Register only Electric Vehicles after 2030: Due to a push towards the usage of EVs initiated by the central government, India has become a global hotspot for electric mobility as it has become one of the largest EV markets in the world.

Following the initiative, the Chandigarh Administration has drafted an electric vehicle policy as the city has the highest density of vehicles in India and thus, the high emission levels impact the air quality of the Union Territory. In the draft policy, the administration has included goals and incentives to promote the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs).

The Ministry of Urban Development is working upon to make Chandigarh a smart city and the Electric Vehicle policy is a part of the process. A tender has been recently passed by the Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) for the use of electric buses in the city.

Chandigarh Administration to Register only Electric Vehicles after 2030

Some details about the draft include that after 2030, only electric vehicles will be registered in the city, and it will have an all-electric fleet of buses and government vehicles by 2027 and 2025 respectively. By 2030, the city will have all-electric rickshaws, corporate fleets, cabs and school buses/vans. The Chandigarh Administration is also planning to install 1,000 public EV chargers by 2030. The incentives and assistance that have been included in the policy for EV charging are:

  • The JERC or Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission has fixed the charge of INR 4 for one unit whereas a fixed monthly charge of INR 100 will be taken on electric bill at the EV charging station.
  • A subsidy of 30% has been proposed for the installation of home chargers and a subsidy of 15% will be given for charging infrastructure companies.

For the implementation of the EV Policy in Chandigarh, the UTI Transport Department will form an EV Steering committee whose responsibility will be to suggest the measures to implement the policy perfectly. The committee will be the nodal department to check the implementation of the policy.

A few days ago, the Chief Minister of Delhi announced that women will be allowed to ignore the odd-even rule that will be applicable in the capital city on 14th and 15th November this year. However, the government has decided not to give any relief to the private vehicles running on CNG. The Delhi Government is still thinking upon exemption for two-wheelers from the odd-even scheme.

This is the third time that the odd-even scheme is being applied after it was enforced in Delhi for two 15-day periods in January 2016 and April 2016. At a recent press conference the Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal said, “Keeping the security of women in mind, we have decided to exempt women from the odd-even scheme. All vehicles being driven by a lone woman driver, a woman driver ferrying female passengers or those with women drivers and children below the age of 12 will be exempt.”

About the non-exemption for CNG vehicles, the Chief Minister explained that this decision has been taken in response to the complaints received about black marketing and misuse of CNG stickers when the scheme was enforced earlier. He also added to his statement saying, “We observed that the stickers used to denote CNG vehicles were sold in the black market and misused by some people to bypass the scheme. This defeats the purpose of odd-even.”

While he was announcing the enforcement of the odd-even rule, the CM also made a reference to a seven-point action plan to tackle pollution in Delhi. According to the plan, every ward in Delhi will have two environment marshals and also the Delhi government will be distributing N-95 masks to people in November.

The exemption has also been extended to vehicles used by President, Vice-President, the Prime Minister, the Central Ministers, the Chief Justice of India, Governors and Chief Ministers of any state, Embassy Vehicles, and those bearing Ministry of Defence number plates.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has issued a unified driving license and vehicle registration norm that would have a uniform ‘smart’ design. According to these norms, every driving licence and the Registration Card (RC) will have the same appearance throughout the country. It will have the same security features along with the QR code.

The new smart driving licence will also be capable to keep a record of the driver and penalties for up to 10 years. At the rear side of the licence, there will be an emergency contact number that will come in handy if the person driving a vehicle gets involved in an accident. In such a case, the bystanders will be able to contact his/her family members using that emergency number.

The step has been taken after MoRTH issued a notification regarding the new design for driving licence and registration card. The first state where the orders have been applied is Uttar Pradesh where the concerned department has already started issuing the DLs and RCs in the said format.

These new regulations are actually targeted at creating a central online database for all vehicles and drivers. A handy tracking device will be issued to the traffic police in order to be able to read the QR code quickly so that they can easily catch the offender even for the past violations.

The state government can install a chip and other features into the card similar to the near field communication (NFC) feature. Apart from that, these smart licences will also have the information about the limitations of a differently-abled driver along with the modifications done to their vehicle.

The smart vehicle registration card will also mention the fuel type and emission details. The Indian government is also planning to improve the quality of the card in order to avoid the fading of printing on it due to ageing.

Every individual’s primary concern is the safety of their family. With the increase in the number of vehicles and accidents related to it, you are always anxious about your loved ones on the road. Keeping an eye on your family when they are out can be challenging at times, but contemporary technologies have made the job laid-back for all of us. One such device capable of keeping an eye on the family is a GPS tracker embedded with a car camera.

There is a wide choice of GPS trackers accessible in the market to help you know about the whereabouts of your loved ones. Some trackers also feature additional capabilities like car camera, engine ideal alert, video live streaming, and so much more. There are many other reasons why one would want to install GPS trackers for the comfort and safety of their family. Let’s dig in a bit deeper into the most important reasons.

Shows the Exact Location of Family Members When in Trouble

Having a GPS tracker installed in the vehicle of your family members helps you know the exact location to send help in case of any unfortunate event. Even though it is not an easy circumstance to think about, having such devices help in the long run. A GPS tracking device also helps you with time management allowing you to never wonder about what time your better half is coming home from work. Always try to choose a GPS tracking system with a car camera to ensure safety for abundant other situations.

Sends Real-Time Alerts If Your Kid Tries to Sneak Out

As a parent, you worry a lot about your kid especially when you are away. No matter how well you have taught your kids, in the end, they are kids and are bound to make mistakes. Parents have many pain points and their teens sneaking out the car at night is one of them. A GPS tracking device will put an end to this and provide real-time alerts when your kid tries to sneak out the car. It also aids in real-time monitoring. Say goodbye to worrying about your kid and take their security several notches up.

Helps to Keep a Track on Your Chauffer

In this busy world, being a parent means many things. You might be busy at work, and at the same time, you also don’t want your kid to be late for school or their hobby classes. This is one of the reasons why parents prefer chauffeur driven cars to make transportation easy for their family. Though, that also adds up to their worry about the safety of their family.

There are times when chauffer tends to wander for their personal work or detour vehicle in your absence. A GPS tracker keeps you abreast with the movement of your car in real-time. Most people buy a GPS tracker which has an inbuilt car camera to easily keep a track on their chauffer and ensure their family’s well-being.

A GPS tracker has become an inevitability in today’s time and age. Moreover, not just location, GPS trackers offer many more features to help you increase the safety of your family members. With a sheer number of GPS tracking systems in the market, there is no better time to be part of the action than right now.

Navratri is a much-awaited festival across the country. It is celebrated in different forms, with varied names, in numerous culture and in a number of different ways. It is one of those festivals that bridges the discrete cultures that reside in the country and coheres them.

In the north-eastern and eastern parts of India, Durga Puja is synonymous with Navratri on the other hand in the northern and western parts of India, the festival is synonymous with Ram Lila and Dussehra. With the introduction of smartphones, WhatsApp, and Facebook, people like to greet each through Navratri wishes, greetings, and images.

Behind the different forms of celebration, there are different tales behind these. Durga Puja signifies the battle of Devi Durga with the buffalo demon Mahishasur in which she emerges victorious.

According to the new Motor Vehicle Act, the violators of the traffic rules would have to pay hefty fines to the transport department. The new initiative has created a lot of ruckus over the roads though, at the same time, the citizens are now avoiding breaking the traffic rules which were usually ignored before the implementation of the new laws in the country. The news reports of traffic violators asked to pay heavy fines have been circling the internet.

One such recent incident that has been making rounds is the INR 2 lakh fine issued to a truck driver for breaking multiple traffic rules at the same time. It is the highest fine imposed on a driver ever since the new rules have been implemented in India from September 1, 2019. The truck has a Haryana registration plate and was halted at the GT road near Karnal.

The truck driver didn’t have a valid license while at the same time was overloading products beyond the permissible capacity. In addition to this, the vehicle permit, PUC certificate, registration and other documents were not as per the mandatory rules. Another fine was imposed on the driver for not wearing the seat belt, which is now mandatory in heavy vehicles also. The new motor vehicle act requires a fine of INR 5000 to be paid by the driver for not wearing a seat belt.

Thus summing the fine amount of INR 20,000 for vehicle overloading, INR 36,000 for the additional 18 tonnes carried as well as not carrying the legit required documents adds to a total fine of INR 2,00,500. The truck driver named Ram Kishan paid the entire fine at Rohini court. This kind of hefty challan has broken all the records of previously issues challans in the country under the new motor vehicle act.

In an interview, the CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau explained how OnePlus TV is better as compared to its competitors and gave a little peek into the features of the smart TV. He said, “One more key selling point that I want to highlight is that we are really optimising the Android TV system which I don’t see a lot of brands in Indian market [doing]. Because of our great partnership with Google, not only do we use their Android TV system but we also optimise it very deeply.” He also added that the smart TV will be equipped with a revamped UI as compared to other Android TVs, giving an augmented exposure.

About the future ventures, the company said that it may also come up with 45-inches and 65-inches variants of the OnePlus TV and will compete with smart TVs like that of the Samsung, LG, and Sony.
