Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

At the press conference during " Make in India " week , you announced electronic toll collection at 360 toll plazas from April 01

You said :

"  Waiting period at toll nakas range from 10 to 30 minutes and lead to wastage of much time and fuel

Under the ( new ) system, stickers attached to vehicles will be scanned at toll plazas and the toll will be automatically deducted from motorists' pre-paid accounts "

The news report says , a special body comprising two banks and a government agency will operate the system

Of course , such systems have been successfully working in a number of countries for decades

But you are a visionary  ! And impatient ( - a rare virtue among Ministers ! )

And determined to make a difference to the existing poor state of affairs in our country's transport systems

You may want to consider my following suggestion :

*  You have already decided that Indian Vehicle Manufacturers shall comply with Bharat VI emission standards ,
    from April 2020 ( bypassing Bharat V standards )

*  Please pass an Executive Order ( no need for passing a Bill in Rajya Sabha ! ) which requires ( from April 2020 ),

    #  ALL vehicle manufacturers to install a RFID sensor in each vehicle ,

    #  A device to measure emission level of each engine and broadcast the readings to a Web-based Network

    #  Assign each vehicle , a unique IP V 6.0 , internet address ( URL ) , linked with its Engine Serial Number

 *  Install a IT enabled platform , which connects all State RTOs with the Union Transport Ministry thru VPN

*  Install software which , using these devices ,  continuously / dynamically monitors ,

    #  Physical location of each and every vehicle , on each and every road of our country , thru Google Maps

         This will display Traffic Density on all the roads and guide the motorists re routes to be avoided 

    #  The actual Emission Level of each vehicle, at all times and sends a Warning Signal to local RTO / local

         Traffic Police / the vehicle manufacturers / Central Transport Ministry

         When the actual emission level exceeds permissible level , a RED light on top of the vehicle will flash !


If anyone says , " This cannot be implemented by April 2020 " , then ask him to provide an earlier date  !
