Title: e-Safety Programme in India Partners: AITS, India

e-Safety Programme in IndiaPartners AITS,
  • Presented by
  • Amitabh Bajpai
  • President, AITS India
  • International Cooperation Working Group Session

The urgency to plan and manage transportation
more coherently, with more defined goals and
common objectives is being understood by the
government now.
  • All govt. departments related to transportation
    in India are presently finalizing plans, policies
    and strategies to ensure safety, efficiency and
    sustainability of moving people and goods,
    optimize asset management and harmonise cohere
    technology developments.

And this couldnt be happening at a more
opportune time.
 Urbanization is happening at a very fast rate,
posing immense challenges to urban authorities to
plan and manage transportation with great
flexibility and scalability.The percentage
decadal growth of population in urban areas
during the decade is 31.2 percent respectively.
The Govt. has pledged connectivity to all rural
and remote areas in India within the next five
years, through the Prime Ministers Gram Sadak
Yojana (Prime Ministers Rural Roads Programme)
National Highways Development Programme is in
full swing.
  • With a total length of 33 lakh km, the road
    network of India was one of the largest in the
    world, second only to the United States.

The Govt. has identified transport and
infrastructure as first priority, with rail,
ports, aviation and river interlinking allocated
handsome budgets to move India forward fast
with telecom IT as the backbone.
Yet this rapid development has also given rise to
the worst problems related to traffic accidents,
congestion and environmental pollution.
  • Ø       About 80,000 people die on Indian roads
    each year one of the highest in the world.
  • Ø      Delhi, Kanpur, Agra are among some of the
    most polluted cities in the world, giving
    dramatic rise to asthma and bronchial diseases
    among the citizens, particularly infants and
  • Ø      At the present rate of growth, it is
    estimated that speeds on Delhi roads of motorized
    traffic will fall to 5 km/hour!

But with integrated, coherent planning, a
powerful pool of trained professionals in IT,
engineers and telecom, India has the potential to
align its development to the 21st century to
address these problems.
Therefore, the e-Safety programme signed between
AITS, India and Ertico couldnt have come at a
better time.

    Sibal during the 7th Asia-Pacific Conference
