August 5, 2014

LUCKNOW: Chief secretary Alok Ranjan has issued directions to start radio taxis in all municipal cities of the state in the next six months to provide better transport facilities to the general public.

Ranjan also said public work should be done online through e-governance to completely prohibit entry of commission agents.

He asked the officials to increase the number of counters in transport offices of bigger cities of the state so that the general public was not made to wait. Ranjan was reviewing the functioning of the public works department (PWD) and the transport department here.

He asked the PWD to get 75% financial approvals issued by September and cent per cent by December to complete the works with quality.

He also asked it to present a proposal for establishment of an engineering training institute in the state for training of engineers. As many as 402 habitations with a population of 500 or more in 12 districts must be linked with pucca roads by October under the Shri Ram Saran Das Sadak Yojana, he added.

The task of linking the district headquarters of Gautam Budh Nagar, Aligarh, Bulandshahr, Rae Bareli, Hamirpur, and Hathras with four lane roads should be completed by December, he said.
