National Urban Transport Policy, 2014

The Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India (MoUD) came out with the National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP) in 2006 to bring about comprehensive improvements in urban transport services and infrastructure. The policy focus was on moving people rather than vehicles. Eight years later, Institute of Urban Transport (India), a professional body promoted by MoUD, undertook a comprehensive review of the NUTP 2006. After a series of consultations, that included taking cognisance of recommendations of working groups on urban transport, interviews and comments of officials from various cities, review of international practice, and several workshops and roundtable discussions, the NUTP 2014 was finalised and published.

The National Urban Transport Policy 2014 recognises the huge deficit in urban transport services and infrastructure both in quality and quantity. The use of desirable modes of trasnport -- walk, bicycle, and public transport -- is declining and the use of undesirable modes, i.e. car and two-wheelers, is growing. As a result, congestion is increasing, urban mobility as well as road safety are declining, and pollution, use of fossil fuel, and accidents are rising by the day.

The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), a Delhi-based non-governmental organization, has forecast that India’s commercial energy demand and emissions would increase by about six to seven times by 2031-32, if nothing is done to curb the emissions.

The NUTP 2014 seeks to encourage growth of urban transport along a low carbon path. The complete policy document can be accessed by clicking the link below.
