Default Public Transport Vehicles to have GPS devices installed by 20th Feb, 2014

From Feb 20th this month, Government will enforce the mandated requirement of having GPS devices installed in Public Transport vehicles including autos, taxis and buses running in major cities with a population of over 10 lakh.
The deadline for this implementation was Sep 30, 2013.

Quote:
According to a ministry of road transport and highways circular, owners of public service vehicles are required to get GPS ( Global Positioning System) installed in their vehicles by February 20, 2014 failing which necessary action as deemed fit shall be taken against the defaulters.
This project is part of the Nirbhaya Fund for women safety.

Hopefully, the public vehicles owners knew this for some time They come up with new plans without giving much time and make sure the necessary equipment is available.

As I understand, all vehicles will have CCTV and also record their complete tracks using GPS. Not sure how this will help if the recording is local to the vehicle and can be trampled with.
