Transport Department has initiated a month-long special drive with the intention to curb the rampant violation of use of non-transport vehicles for commercial purposes.
The drive will be held from December 6 till January 5, 2018 all over Goa.
Taking serious cognizance of rise in such violations, Director of Transport Nikhil Dessai issued directions to all assistant directors to carry out special drive and pull up privately registered non-transport vehicles for commercial activities and for transportation of goods or for hire purpose to​​ transport passengers.
"It has been decided to undertake a special drive against all such violators for the month of December 2017, during which period such violations are found to be maximum due to tourism season," reads the memorandum issued by DoT Dessai.
Motor vehicles registered as non-transport vehicles but operating illegally as taxis, yellow and black as well as tourist taxis, drivers who are driving vehicles without a public service vehicle authorization and also drivers who possess a public service authorization issued by other States will be booked rigorously over the coming month.
Assistant directors have also been directed to submit an action-taken report every day over the coming month to the Chief Minster as well as the Transport Minister.
