The National Institution for Transforming India (NITI Aayog) and the
International Road Federation, Geneva (IRF Geneva) have, today, signed a
Statement of Intent (SoI)  to cooperate in the field of Intelligent
Transportation Systems (ITS).

The objective of the SoI is to create a national platform, involving all
relevant Government of India stakeholders, Indian and foreign companies
active in the sector, and relevant technical experts for the purpose of
developing a National ITS Policy covering:
1) Traffic Management,
2) Parking Management,
3) Electronic Enforcement of Traffic Rules and Regulations,
4) Fleet Management and Monitoring,
5) Innovation in the field of ITS, and
6) Education in the field of ITS.

The objectives of this national ITS Policy will be to contribute to
reducing urban traffic congestion, improving the situation around parking
of vehicles in cities, improving road safety, and improving the security of
passenger and goods traffic. The work of this National Platform will
provide a coherent and consistent National ITS Policy covering domains such
as traffic and parking management, enforcement, and security.


While an ITS policy is a welcome move, what india needs is offline changes
like, more buses, right to way for buses, better signage and information in
print. I hope some of you can engage with NITI Aayog related to this.
