Halts chalked out for Gramin Seva

New Delhi: For the first time in the city, halt-and-go spots have been identified for Gramin Seva vehicles. After a survey, 60 such spots were shortlisted by traffic police and a list was sent to the state transport department. A list of 148 new halt-and-go spots for autorickshaws has also been made — adding to the 402 such spots for autos earlier — saidofficials. A presentation was also made to the lieutenant governor on this issue. 
    “We have written to the transport department to notify these halt-and-go spots. We have requested them to mark these spots with road signs and lane markings so that they are clearly visible,” said additional commissioner of police (traffic) Anil Shukla. 
    The halt-and-go spot for Gramin Sevas will not be 
meant for autos and vice versa, said a police official. 
Transport department has 
been asked to ensure that no halt-and-go should be near a DTC bus stop as it could lead to further traffic jams. 
    The 5,000-odd Gramin Seva vehicles have been a nuisance in the city as they had no halt-and-go spot demarcated for them. Following this, they would halt at bus stops, near Metros, and pick up and drop passengers at will. Illegally parked autos and Gramin Seva cause traffic snarls.
