Kohima, May 10 (EMN): Following the announcement made by the People’s Democratic Alliance (PDA) to do away with the prevailing ‘VIP culture’ and in pursuance with the subsequent cabinet decision on March 28 last, the state government has bunged the usage of designation plates on vehicles, which was a rampant practice.
The government has introduced three colour coded car stickers scheme to ensure that there was no inconvenience to ministers, advisors, MLAs and government officials to access the various government buildings and offices in the state. As per a government order issued early last month, Square Red Stickers will be issued to ministers, advisors, MLAs and those stickers will be issued to ‘all official vehicles attached to the dignitaries plus one vehicle’.
Round Green Stickers are to be issued to ‘secretaries and above/AHoDs/HoDs/DCs/SPs/Commandants, while Triangular Yellow Stickers will be issued to all other officers below the rank of secretaries/directorates/ADCs/SDO (C) in the sdistricts/Addl SPs/Dy Cmmdts/SDPO who are entitled a vehicle’.
The order also stated that every sticker/pass will be numbered and the vehicle number, name and designation of the dignitary to whom pass is issued ‘shall invariably be entered therein’. It informed that Deputy Commissioners were authorised to issue Yellow Triangular Pass to all the officers below the rank of DC/SP/Commandant. “DCs shall assess the requirements in their respective districts and accordingly inform the government,” the order said.
Meanwhile, when contacted, the chief secretary’s office informed that work regarding the stickers/passes was in progress. Some top officials in the administration expressed hope that the stickers would be issued soon so as to minimise harassment, not just on VIPs but on those in duty as well.
