Four-wheeler registration in Uttarakhand only after installing mobile dustbins: UTC

Uttarakhand Transport Corporation (UTC) will soon make installation of mobile dustiness in cars and other four-wheelers mandatory before issuing registration certificate. Uttarakhand CM gave a go-ahead to Transport minister Yashpal Arya regarding the implementation of the guidelines during the launch of mobile dustbins issued by Uttarakhand Environment Protection & Pollution Control Board.

CM Trivendra Rawat said that during the travelling season, the tourists generally throw garbage on the roads due to the absence of dustbins in their own cars. Having a dustbin in the car itself will discourage people to pollute the environment and nature. Since the younger generation is conscious about cleanliness, CM believes this initiative will be stepping stone towards a garbage-free Uttarakhand as he directed his cabinet ministers to name mobile dustbins mandatory during vehicle registration.
