The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways will, from now on, also look after the development of Ropeways and Alternate Mobility Solutions. Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari said the move will enable the sector to come up in a systematic way.
Some of the benefits could be last mile connectivity for remote locations, reducing congestion on mainstream roads, setting safety norms for unregulated ropeways and regulating tariffs structure for the technology. So far, there was no systematic regulation of this sector. An amendment to the Government of India (Allocation of Business) Rules, 1961 has been notified to enable this step.
