CM Allows 3 Months Relax

One incident has changed the thinking of the State Government for going state wide overdrive to implement the newly amended Motor Vehicle Act.

Odisha Government went on overdrive to implement new MV Act from  1 September as the State has the worst reputation of highest deaths reported on Roads and Supreme Court of India is directing to lessen deaths by 10 Percent every year.

However serious public resentment and public outcry was expressed at Raj Mahal Square on 7 September, which forced the State Government to stop aggressive overdrive for next three months.

So Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik issued marching orders on 9 September to the enforcement Agencies not to aggressively go on an overdrive but rather to counsel and handhold the public to facilitate compliance with the amended provisions of MV Act.

Chief Minister Mr.Patnaik while expressing deep concern over public resentment which has been reported from some parts of the state, particularly Bhubaneswar, on account of enforcement of the provisions of recently amended MV Act.

He has directed Department of Commerce and Transport to augment Public Services, strengthen the Facilitation Centers, Open Extra Counters, Conduct Camps in Public Institutions so as to enable the
Motor Vehicle Users to update their compliance status.
Mr.Patnaik has said that this process will continue over the next ‘Three Months’ so that adequate time is made available to the public to ensure compliance .
Chief Minister directed Transport Officials to organize Massive Road Safety Awareness campaign and sensitize the people on new norms.
Chief Minister has requested all Motor Vehicle users to obey Traffic Rules and desist from dangerous driving, which will endanger their lives and that of others.
