Bhopal: The Madhya Prad4esh capital is lagging behind in the implementation of proposed Smart Yellow Card Project to modernise city’s traffic management system. Work on the project has already started in Indore, Ujjain and Gwalior and over 1,500 Smart Yellow Cards have already been issued in these three cities.
Could affect smart city ranking
Ranking of smart cities is starting from 15 August. Around 140 points are reserved for yellow card project but Bhopal has not yet started it. If Bhopal wants a high ranking among smart cities, authorities will have to begin work before 15 August.
Documents needed for Smart Yellow Card
1. Vehicle’s registration
2. Vehicle’s insurance
3. Aadhar Card of vehicle owner
Card to cost only Rs 25
Fee of Rs 25 for the Smart Yellow Card has been fixed by Union Home Ministry. As a vehicle is driven by other family members besides the owner at least two cards will be issued for Rs 50 by Save-Life, the company preparing the cards. More than two cards can also be issued for the convenience of family members if the vehicle owner so wishes and the fee for each additional card is Rs 25.
DGP has issued orders
On the directives of the Centre, State Director General of Police had issued orders on 25 June to begin work on Smart Yellow Card Project as soon as possible.
