Meanwhile, Mizoram Transport Minister PC Zoram Sangliana said that in order to manage the too-much enclosed and limited space of Aizawl city, a ‘Coordination Commitee on traffic management’ under the chairmanship of the State Transport Minister has also been set up and it is proposed by the committee that all hindrances within the city be cleaned up soon.
Furthermore, the Committee’s proposals include – regulation for systematic service of taxi; prohibition of keeping commodities outside one’s shop and adjacent to road; using smaller vehicles for city bus; constituting a rule which will require owning a garage for those who sought vehicle registration.
The Minister also mentioned that 35-40 vehicles are registered per day on an average which turns the city into an enclosed space day by day.
