RTOs to fix rates for private ambulances .....they will encourage looting of common man...Alok

All govt decisions in India are based on note or vote. The ambulance owners will form union , together they will bribe Transport minister,RTO and Transport commissioner and  like Auto, Taxi unions they too will go about looting common man  and will harass them. They will blackmail emergency patients etc.. Such services are better when they are disorganized. Today rent act affected buildings owners still get Rs 30/- per room but PUC costs Ts 80 /- but they charge Rs 100/- cause RTO officers are themselves owners of most booth. Similarly pay and park, towing van etc are owned by mafias, govt officials or ministers and common men  are looted. .........PIL seems to be filed by a man of Sharad Rao or an ignorant or RTO. And WIAA is controlled by vested interests so they never raise any voice and malpractice goes on. . ......No one tells you this except Alok......

RTOs to fix rates for private ambulances in Maharashtra by 31st October.

The fixed fare for private ambulances comes as relief for citizens as currently there is no control over the money charged by drivers and owners

Following directions from the Bombay High Court, all the regional transport officers (RTOs) in Maharashtra would declare fixed rates for private ambulances operated in the state. The fixed fare for private ambulances would come as relief to citizens as currently there is no control over the money charged by operators. In several cases, relatives of patients are taken for a ride by ambulance drivers and owners.
Nainesh Dolas had filed the public interest litigation (PIL) in the High Court. In the PIO he prayed for directions to authorities to fix a fare or rates for ambulances not covered under the Public Health Department or attached with government hospitals under section 67(1)(d)(i) read with section 68(3) of the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988.

In an affidavit before the HC, Laxman Khade, deputy transport commissioner stated that the transport commissioner had directed all RTOs across the state to fix fare or rates for ambulances as per the provisions under the Motor Vehicle Act before 31 October 2013. As per the affidavit, so far RTOs from 18 regions have already fixed fares or rates for ambulances.

According to Dolas, the petitioner, so far RTOs from 20 regions have declared fixed rates for private ambulances. The rest 23 RTOs who would declare the same by 31st October, include Mumbai (East, West and Central), Thane, Panvel, Pune, Dhule, Aurangabad, Ratnagiri, Karad, Baramati, Shrirampur, Majalgaon, Beed, Osmanabad, Parbhani, Hingoli, Buldhana, Yavatmal, Akola, Wardha, Chandrapur and Bhandara.
