Speed Kills Install Speed Governorsthrough proper tender/eligibility criteria process

Speed Kills – Install Speed Governorsthrough proper tender/eligibility criteria process

 

This press conference is called to suggest process and measures which would ensure precautionary measures resulting in minimize/control Road accidents & resultant deaths to a reasonable extent if the Speed Governors which are mandated by the Hon’able Supreme Court to save precious human lives are installed through a tender/eligibility criteria process.

 

As per recent survey and latest news articles on road accidents it is evident that Commercial Vehicles on highway with high speed are one of the main reason.

 

As per the National Crime Records Bureau report for the year 2014, in the State of Bihar 9531 road accidents took place with 6789 injuries and 4822 deaths in the year 2014. This is very large volume of Deaths.

 

It is submitted over speeding by commercial vehicles has played a major role in such accidental deaths in the State of Bihar.

 

However, because of improper implementation and lack of enforcement, the desired results for Installation of Speed Governors could not be obtained and achieved inasmuch as the State lacked in their intent on the implementation of the Speed Governor regime and kept on giving relaxation with regard to installation of Speed Governors on various category of vehicles citing reason of non availability of Speed Governor in the market with regard to that segment of motor vehicle. No effort has, however, made by the State to ensure availability of Speed Governors to achieve the intent and directions of the Hon’ble Supreme Court as mandated vide its order in PIL No. WPC no 793/2015.

 

Speeding Kills- Control Speed & Reduce number of accidents by installing Speed Governors in Commercial Vehicles.

 

The most effective way to reduce these alarming statistics is by slowing down on our roads. If we all slowed down, our chances of being killed or seriously injured on the road would dramatically decrease. Speeding is not just driving faster than the speed limit. It is also driving too fast for the weather, light, traffic and road conditions. After lot of efforts & persuasion in order to reduce deaths & injuries on the roads of the country, Supreme Court of India in the year 2002, issued directions for fitment of speed governors to save lives to all the states, but to utter disregard to human lives states have not followed the directions.

 

Recently, the Ministry Of Road Transport & Highways, Government Of India, vide Notification dated 15th April, 2015 notified vide G.S.R.290 ( E), amendment in CMVR Rule No. 118 concerning Speed Governors. According to the said amendment, the State Government, on or before 1st October 2015, shall specify the categories of transport vehicles registered prior to 1st October 2015, which are not already fitted with a Speed Governor and not exempted in the provision in the Rule, with a Speed Governor by the operators of those vehicles on or before April 1, 2016 with a maximum preset speed as may be specified in the notification or by the State Government. Further by an order dated February 18, 2016, the Hon’ble Division Bench Karnataka High Court has allowed a Writ Petition by quashing the exemption granted to M1, M2 & N1 Category of transport & goods vehicles from fitment of Speed Governors.

 

Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Hon’ble Supreme Court Of India ( Writ Petition (C) No. 793 of 2015)  against the MORTH, Union of India and all States Principal Secretary / Transport Commissioner a Division Bench of Hon’ble Supreme Court was pleased to issue notice to all parties returnable on 11th January, 2016 ( since extended to 19th February, 2014)to submit report(s) with regard to implementation of Speed Governors and the Union of India as well as the States/Union Territories have been directed to furnish reports as regards the steps taken by them in pursuant of the various judgments passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court as well as the statutory notifications and the letter dated 21.08.2009 for the implementation of the notification dated 15.04.2015 issued by the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways. (Copy of orders are available for circulation)

 

In its letter dated 21 August 2009, MORTH had suggested that for the fitment of speed governors through proper tender/eligibility criteria process and follow a very stringent MIS system to ensure Quality of Speed Governors installed and avoid Fly-by-night and sub-standard manufacturers and do away with Tampering issues and provide a proper AMCs and After Sales Service. In addition in case the Vendor does not meet the requirements a stiff penalty could be imposed to safeguard the interest of the state. Thus to ensure effective implementation, the State Governments should invite  tenders with suitable eligibility criteria and should not be implemented through open market process which has been extensive abused and misused.

 

On 21st February, 2016 the CMVR-TSC directed that each selected SLD manufacturer/supplier will be required to maintain a MIS system to keep record of each SLD installed on the vehicle for audit/quick retrieval at any time. An MIS should be capable of analyzing all required and connected information.

 

State of Bihar has come out with the notification no. 6/Miscellaneous (Speed Governor) – 16/2016/951 dated 22nd April 2016in pursuance of the MORTH Notification dated 15th April 2015. However they have not followed the guidelines of MORTH letter dated 21st August 2009 and minutes of meeting of MORTH dated 21st December 2015 of selection of manufacturers of Speed Governor through stringent shortlisting process with suitable Eligibility Criteria.

 

In this regard we believe that proper Implementation of Notification GSR 290 (E) dated April 15, 2015 regarding Speed Governors can be achieved if the same is implemented through tender/eligibility criteria process to achieve real aim of the said Notification in the State of Jharkhand…..just like the state of Karnataka has done by following a process of Selection of Manufacturers of Speed Governors through stringent short listing process with suitable eligibility criteria.

 

Please Install Speed Governors to save Lives through proper tender /short listing process: In view of the above, we are pleading to the state governments that the only way to ensure the effective state– wide implementation of the speed control is to install Speed Governors regime, and to put an end to the infringement of the fundamental rights enshrined in Article 21 of the Constitution, is through immediate implementation of the scheme through proper tender process by short listing the agency/ manufacturers through rigorous and stringent short listing process with strict terms & conditions and thereafter assign the project to those eligible shortlisted manufacturers who comply & fulfil the criteria (ascertain through the state approved agency only).

Baal veer – Transcript

Baal veer – Transcript

 

 

You play a superhero on your show Baal veer. How does it feel to know that kids look up to you

 

I love playing the role of a super hero character like Baal Veer, it’s really a lot of fun and especially when children watch me and learn good things from me I feel really great

 

 

How difficult is it playing a superhero onscreen? Does it get difficult to shoot with the heavy costumes?

 

It’s a little difficult to play the character of a superhero especially when it comes to shooting in chroma where we have to act and react as per our imaginations and secondly even shooting with the costumes gets a little tough sometimes but we manage it because without the costume you don’t feel like a superhero. But when we go and watch it on TV it feels so different and great, so the experience and learning while making the show is amazing

 

 

Who is your superhero in real life? And why?

 

In real life my superhero is my father because he is an all-rounder he manages his business and makes time for me whenever he can and makes sure he comes down to take me out for movies and give us family time so I really look up to him for this

 

One crazy fan moment that you can remember?

 

All my fan moments have been crazy and I really appreciate them for the love they bestow on me. If you ask me to mention one fan moment the time I spent in Indonesia with my fans was a memorable one because having viewers abroad for your show is a huge compliment for us and I was really amazed with the response our show received there.

 

 

How do you manage your studies along with the shoots?

 

I manage my work and studies all thanks to my mother, my sp, my school authorities, my teachers, my show team and as well as my father. Without them it would have been really difficult to handle so many tasks. But all thanks to them I don’t have much issues managing my work and studies

 

You appeared for your 10th std board exams recently, how did it go? Relieved now that its vacation time?

 

My 10th board exams weren’t so tough but it’s a different experience all together compared to the exams you give from 1st to the 9th std. You have a different center to go give your exams, you meet new people. I did have a little tension while appearing for my Math and science paper as they are known to scare kids and the whole feeling and pressure of appearing for your 10th boards really adds up to it but now that they are finally done I’m completely relieved

 

 

How are you planning to spend your summer vacations this year?

 

This year as it is the summer vacations me and my family planned on travelling to a cold place so we went to Manali and Shimla to get away from the heat. And now I am back to shooting and really excited about it as I have a new superhero attire because of which I have more superpowers and it’s really fun and exciting

 

 

Any message for your little fans?

 

My message to my little fans is to always be happy, always listen to your parents and your teachers. Be good study well and keep watching Baal Veer from Mondayto Friday at 8pm only on SAB tv and keep writing letters to us and tell us how you liked our new look on the show and to all my little fans as Baal veer always says Khush Raho SAB log Khush Raho
