A Union of Vehicle Owners ?



Times of India ( 25 July ) carries following report :



“ Driverless tech will leave millions without jobs . won’t allow it : Gadkari “




Highlights :



·         India will not allow driverless cars to ply on its roads, transport minister Nitin Gadkari said


·         The minister added that focus of the government is to create more jobs to arrest unemployment


·         He said there is already annual shortage of about 22,000 trained drivers in India


Shri Nitin Gadkari announced that the Ministry would launch a single mobile app for booking all kinds of vehicles – car, autos, e-bikes and e-rickshaws , which will end the monopoly of Uber and Ola


Gadkari said the government will provide a app-based platform where anyone who wants to start a cab business, can register and run vehicles


“ Why should two companies like Uber and Ola have a monopoly in the market ?


We want people , even those running cab business at a small scale , to have an equal opportunity to provide service to people .


The mobile app will provide a platform to such people , and better , efficient and cheaper cab services , to people “ , said Gadkari


The Minister said people will have many options to choose based on the most economic operator






Shri Gadkariji seems to be telling the Un-Employed of India :


“ Government cannot provide employment to 12 million persons , every year , but here is your chance to get Self – Employed


Government’s job is to facilitate people to get into business , for themselves

For taking this  FIRST STEP  which will  UNIFY  the vehicle owners


I have no doubt , your  TRANSPORT  MASTER  PLAN , comprises of the following steps as well

  1. Shri Gadkariji should face the reality of driver-less cars - and not block it - to keep pace with the global reality. We have to think of alternative sources of employment for likes of drivers.

    Prgress in technology waits for no one.
