Gandhidham of Kutch is called the 2nd largest business city. More than 5000 Trucks Ply every day because of a lot of business for transport in Kandla and Mundra ports. The government has allotted radium work to two agencies for passing of trucks at Gandhidham R.T.O.
Many transporters entered the room of R.T.O.officer today against this corruption and asked the reason for charging Rs.5500/ in place of Rs.650/ by the agencies.
Transporters asked to give the certificates other wise passing will be difficult after 5 to 6 days as in other districts it is not being charged more than Rs. 750/ but here they are charging Rs.5500/ to 7000/ and issuing the receipt of Rs.700 / to Rs.800/ which is a part of corruption. The Transport Association has asked for stiff action against the offenders.
