After striking work for eight days in July 2018 demanding lowering of third party basic insurance premium and its exemption from GST, elimination of flaws and non-transparency in the toll collection system that favours road concessioners leading to time and fuel loss, national permit scheme for tourist vehicles, uniform height for transport vehicles, increase in validity of fitness certificates to two years, e-way bill streamlining, reduction in central and state taxes on fuel and bring it under GST among others, the All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC), which claims the support of 93 lakh truckers has announced that it has been assured by the government of it looking into its demands. Stating that the talks with the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), led to some concessions being made by the Government, AIMTC sources said that the Insurance Regulatory Development Authority of India (IRDAI) has agreed to discuss the demand for reviewing the premium for third party insurance for heavy vehicles. The MoRTH, said the source, will put in place a mechanism using technology-based solutions to ensure seamless movement of transport vehicles across toll plazas within six months. A high level committee under the Chairmanship of Secretary, Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is expected to facilitate expeditious resolution of the demands of the transport fraternity. The government will also look at the feasibility to extend Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana and Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana to the drivers and co-workers of CVs beside exploring the possibility of providing them with health services under ESIC.
