Transport Dept revenue registers 4.65% increase

By PRANJAL BHUYAN

GUWAHATI, May 17 � Encouraged by the growing number of vehicle registrations and emphasis on enforcement of penalties for violation of rules, the Transport Department has achieved an annual increase of 4.65 per cent in its revenue collection in 2014-15.

As per Commissionerate of Transport data, a total amount of Rs 378.34 crore was collected as revenue during the period April 2014 to March 2015 from across the State, as against Rs 361.54 crore during the previous financial year.

This resulted in an increase of Rs 16.8 crore or 4.65 per cent in the year-on-year revenue collection.

Sources said better coordination among sections of the department, increase in collection of motor vehicle tax and crackdown on violators helped in boosting revenue collection in 2014-15.

However, the actual revenue collection during the fiscal still fell a little short of the target, which had been set at Rs 382.57 crore.

The Kamrup District Transport Office (Registration and Licence) was the best performer with a revenue collection of Rs 110.18 crore.

In second place was Dibrugarh where the department was able to collect revenue to the tune of Rs 21.23 crore.

It was followed by Sivasagar with Rs 20.16 crore, Tinsukia with Rs 19.83 crore and Nagaon with Rs 19.12 crore.

Among the DTOs with the lowest revenue collection in 2014-15 were Dima Hasao (Rs 80 lakh), Baksa (Rs 1.56 crore), Udalguri (Rs 2.79 crore), Chirang (Rs 3.26 crore) and Hailakandi (Rs 3.35 crore).

Besides, the revenue collection from the three inter-State border check gates of Srirampur (Rs 2.01 crore), Boxirhat (Rs 2.95 crore) and Digharkhal (1.23 crore) during 2014-15 were much below the target.

Sources said that besides attempts at boosting revenue collection, the Transport Department has also taken up initiatives to secure better coordination with other departments, including the police, PWD, various district administrations and National Highway Authority of India in order to increase road safety and curb accidents.
