Chandigarh, Apr 16 (PTI) Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari said today that the issue of plying of double-decker buses on Delhi-Chandigarh and Delhi-Jaipur routes was under consideration.
He also said the Union government was working to introduce a system under which drivers would not be required to stop while passing through a toll plaza. The toll fee would be deducted directly from their bank accounts, he said, speaking at a programme in Gurugram today, according to an official release.
Gadkari said this system existed in South Korea. The President of South Korea is visiting India in May and an MoU will be signed with him for introducing the system. It would ease traffic movement at toll plazas, he said.
He said that plying of double-decker buses was under consideration and that when introduced, meals would be served in the buses.
