"We will not allow driver-less cars in India. India suffers a huge shortage of 22 lakh drivers... Cab aggregators take advantage of these. We are not going to promote any technology or policy that will render people jobless," Mr Gadkari said.
He said the government is planning to introduce a cab aggregator platform where commuters could choose any mode of transportation such as electric four-wheeler taxis or two-wheelers.
The government is also planning to make global positioning system or GPS and satellite tracking mandatory in all public and private vehicles. "Talks are on with World Bank and Asian Development Bank to help India to replicate the London Transport Authority Model where all the public transportation buses would be replaced by luxury buses, and a common man can travel in them by paying about 40 per cent less price as compared to current fares," Mr Gadkari said.
