Incredible but true: There is one Indian city with more vehicles than humans
The city in question has a weird distinction. It has 36.2 lakh vehicles, but only 35 lakh humans. Officials say this may just be the first time this has happened in an urban area of India. The city is Pune.
The Regional Transport Office (RTO) MH-12 has said it has exceeded its revenue target by a significant level two years in a row. For 2017-18, the revenue was Rs 1021.6 crore, a whopping 18 percent more than the target of Rs 862.3 crore.
RTO chief Ajri says the ever-rising number of vehicles has caused massive traffic management issues in most parts of the city, and that traffic rule violations are already up. Therefore, the government is considering implementing a “One-Vehicle policy” by making every single household in the city to have only one vehicle. Else, this would translate to multiple vehicles in each household.
