One-nation-one-card policy for public transport soon: NITI Aayog

The road transportation segment alone contributes to around 4% of India’s GDP with the segment still being heavily dependent on fossil fuels

New Delhi: India will shortly unveil a one-nation-one-card policy for public transport that will bring seamless connectivity between various modes of transport, NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said on Monday.

He said a robust transportation sector was the backbone for the development of any economy, especially for a densely populated developing country like India, and the focus of the nation’s mobility strategy was on sustainable modes of public transport, transport-oriented planning and digitisation.

“The objective of the strategy is to plan for the citizens first, rather than focusing on vehicles alone, by providing sustainable mobility and accessibility by switching to cleaner mode of transportation,” Kant said at the “ Mobility Summit-2018-India’s Move to NextGen Transport Systems”.

The road transportation segment alone contributes to around 4% of India’s GDP with the segment still being heavily dependent on fossil fuels.

In the wake of the worsening air quality in the country’s major cities, rising concerns of climate change and an ever-increasing oil import bill, mobility is a crucial piece of the development puzzle and the key to unlocking the potential of India’s economy and people, the NITI Aayog CEO said.

NITI Aayog advisor Anil Srivastava said the government was working towards achieving a robust mobility across India. “The citizens, on their part, should work towards sharing a ride, not owning the ride. The government has integrated many stake holders across departments to drive India’s mobility vision,” he added.

All the citizens of India are requested to Participate in the “Coin a suitable name for One Nation One Card” Contest.

Digital Payment is one of the focus areas of the Government for creation of a cashless and inclusive economy. Government of India is making efforts for providing the facility of seamless digital payment to all citizens of India in a convenient manner.
