The Assam cabinet decided on December 15 that private vehicle owners can now operate their vehicles as UberPool, OlaShare, or an aggregator without changing the number plates.

It should be noted that, in addition to Ola and Uber, the bike-taxi service provider Rapido has captured a significant market share.

As a result, the Assam state government has decided to establish regulations for riding two-wheelers on the road.

“From now on, anyone with a two-wheeler can make a maximum of four trips in a day, even if they have a private number plate, provided they tie up with taxi rental service providers,” Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma said.

 

Furthermore, the CM stated that this will allow students and others to supplement their regular income.

In addition, the state government has allowed citizens to use carpooling services.

“I have a private car, and now when I go to the office, I can pick up four people as passengers…which can be referred to as pool service,” he explained.

Private car owners will now be able to link their vehicle to the Ola/Uber service with a remark such as – the car is available at 10:00 AM and returning at 5:00 PM, so that the service provider can connect passengers with the said vehicle.

The Assam state cabinet has approved a flyover from Guwahati’s Handique Collge near Paltanbazar Railway Station to the Noonmati area in order to make Guwahati the gateway to the northeast.

The proposed flyover will be four-laned and approximately 7-8 kilometres long. The flyover will connect the Paltanbazar Railway Station to the Noonmati area of Guwahati without any intersections along the Gopinath Bordaloi path.

People travelling from Nagoan-Jagiroad will be able to arrive at the railway station without any difficulty.
