Madhya Pradesh has abolished transport check posts at interstate borders and has implemented a new system focused on road safety and enforcement checkpoints across the state.

Madhya Pradesh has removed transport check posts at its interstate borders, replacing them with 45 new road safety and enforcement checking points in the first phase. Until these permanent points are established, temporary mobile units comprising district transport office staff, enforcement personnel, and home guards will manage operations.

CM Mohan Yadav, in a video conference meeting on Sunday, instructed administrative and police officials across districts to support the Transport Department in this transition. The initiative aims to eliminate irregularities and ensure transparency in interstate vehicle movements starting July 1, 2024.

“We are committed to addressing any complaints swiftly and ensuring a smoother, cleaner functioning of the Transport Department,” stated CM Yadav, emphasizing the government’s dedication to good governance and efficiency.

Flying squads will now operate in border districts under the revamped system, ensuring minimal disruption for operators of outside vehicles. CM Yadav highlighted that the transparent framework will benefit all stakeholders.

In addition, CM Yadav directed the Transport Department to conduct driving license camps in colleges, enforce rules for passenger bus operations, maintain strict timetables, and enhance checks on school buses and rural transport services.

The decision to abolish interstate check posts has been welcomed by the All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC). It praised the move for facilitating smoother road transport operations and reducing delays. “We are pleased to announce the abolition of check posts in Madhya Pradesh from July 1, 2024. This decision will greatly benefit our industry and streamline transport activities,” read a statement from AIMTC.

Madhya Pradesh’s move to eliminate interstate check posts reflects its commitment to modernizing transport operations while enhancing road safety measures across the state. The transition aims to foster efficiency and transparency in handling interstate vehicle movements, promising a positive impact on both transport operators and the public.
