By M. Suresh Kumar | October 25, 2019 07:57:08India is looking to the US as an alternative to the current jam-ridden traffic jam.
A law to deal with traffic jams, or traffic ‘jams’, has been drafted by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and is expected to be passed soon.
A section of the draft bill, known as the ‘jamb law’, will require tolls on roads and other infrastructure in a bid to curb traffic.
This could include the construction of highways and road-rail bridges.
The bill, which was introduced on October 11, is aimed at ensuring that all road users, including the government and private companies, pay for their road and traffic costs.
It also aims at improving the flow of traffic by reducing road and pedestrian deaths, speeding up travel, and reducing traffic congestion.
In an effort to help India get its act together, the government has set up an agency to implement the new bill, called the Road Traffic and Highways Development Authority (RTHDA).
The RTHDA has been set up by the government to work with private sector to tackle the traffic jam and to reduce traffic congestion in India.
The draft bill was drafted by NHAI, the National Highway Authority of Japan (NWAJ), and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and was presented to the NHAA in December.
The bill aims to make India a safe country for traffic.
The government said the bill will improve road safety, reduce congestion and congestion, and boost economic growth.
The draft law will not affect the existing traffic laws.
The law will also take into account traffic-related factors such as congestion, pollution, pollution in urban areas, and road safety.
The NHA is hoping to pass the law within a year, though there are concerns over how effective the new law will be in India, a country with a population of 7.5 billion.
“There is a real risk that this new law would not work as well as the existing laws,” NHA I Sureshan Kumar, Minister of State for Road Transport and Highway Development, told ET in an interview.
The Indian government is aiming to pass a new traffic bill within a week.
NHA, the NWAJ, and JICA have been working on the draft for more than a year.
It is a step in the right direction, said R.S. Srivastava, executive director of the Transport and Road Research Foundation, a Bangalore-based think tank.
However, critics have questioned whether the bill is really needed.
“If the government wants to take a major step to address traffic congestion, the law is a good one,” said Anil Kumar, professor of transportation engineering at Jawaharlal Nehru University.
“It will definitely have some effect on traffic in India.”
Traffic jams are caused by roads and highways that are clogged with vehicles and people.
They are also often caused by poor infrastructure, especially in urban and rural areas.
The government has made it a priority to improve road infrastructure in India in the past, but there is a huge gap in the quality of roads, with a lack of maintenance, frequent breaks, and limited space.
The roads are also not well maintained, according to data from the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways.
The NHA has already invested Rs 1,300 crore in upgrading the country’s roads, including widening and widening highways, improving roads in urban districts, and improving traffic conditions.
The new law is part of a government drive to make road transport and highways a priority, said Suresha Kumar, NHA chief executive.
The law will allow the government, private entities, and non-governmental organizations to provide help to the public to improve the quality and speed of road and bridge construction.
The new law also allows for public-private partnership.
“We have to improve our roads, bridges, and transport systems in India,” said S. Sankar Reddy, deputy director general of the NRA.
The RTHADA will also help in the implementation of the National Transport Plan (NTP) 2017, which aims to provide better roads, public transport, and infrastructure in rural areas, including rural roads.
