National Urban Transport Policy

The Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India has come up with the “National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP)” approved on 4th April 2006. A key distinction of NUTP (Ministry of Urban Development, 2006) is on the notion of addressing mobility of ‘people’ over ‘vehicles’. Thus, the NUTP has the primary aim to ensure easily accessible, safe, affordable, quick, comfortable, reliable and sustainable mobility for all and thus outline the following objectives:
  1. Reduce the existing levels of congestion,
  2. Reduce the impact of motor vehicles on urban air pollution,
  3. Improve road safety, and
  4. Foster the use of sustainable technologies that minimize the consumption of imported fuels in urban transport and thus preserve the country’s energy security.
