One Nation One Card policy soon for public transport services, says NITI Ayog CEO

India is soon going to start a ‘One Nation One Card’ scheme for public transport services across the country. NITI Ayog CEO Amitabh Kant has today stated that it will benefit Indians and will ensure seamless connectivity between various modes of public transport.

According to reports, Amitabh Kant said at the ‘Future Mobility Summit 2018-India’s move to NextGen public transport systems’ that the objective of the strategy is to plan for the citizens first, rather than focusing on the vehicles alone, by providing sustainable mobility and accessibility by switching to cleaner modes of transportation.

The road transport sector alone reportedly contributes to 4% of India’s GDP. Amitabh Kant also stated that a seamless transportation network is the backbone of any nation’s economic development and sustainable public transport should be the focus of any mobility strategy.

Amitabh Kant also reportedly said in the mobility summit that in the wake of worsening air quality, rising oil import bills and climate change, mobility is a crucial piece in the puzzle of development and is the key to unlock India’s economic potential.

NITI Ayog adviser Anil Srivastava stated that the governmnet of India is working towards the development of a robust mobility ecosystem in the country. He also reportedly added that the citizens should work towards sharing a ride rather than owning a ride.
