MP News: Controversy has come to the fore regarding the 108 ambulances of Chhattisgarh seen on the roads of Madhya Pradesh. Some of these don’t have numbers and some don’t have registration at all. The Aam Aadmi Party had said about this that earlier the Aam Aadmi Party had informed the administration. But Madhya Pradesh continued to suffer losses. Despite this, it was not taken care of.
In Madhya Pradesh, there is a demand for action against these ambulances which are violating the rules on the roads. Be informed that there is no registration fee for ambulances in Chhattisgarh. Jai Ambe, the company that had taken the contract to operate 108 ambulances in the state, got all the ambulances registered from Raipur. Since then, public representatives have been demanding action against the company by terming it as a loss of Madhya Pradesh’s revenue.
About two thousand ambulances running in the state are to be registered in Madhya Pradesh within a year. However, even after registration, the company will have to pay 10 percent of the registration fee in the RTO as a new vehicle registration fee. At present, the company is operating two thousand ambulances in the state, most of them are of Chhattisgarh number or without number. In such a situation, on registration in the state, the government will get a revenue of about 40 crores. According to the information received from the NHM office, the registration has to be done in the next three months. But the company has not yet started any process regarding this.
Harm to the state due to violation of RTO rules: Pradeep Khandelwal
