Transport minister Gopal Rai held a coordination committee meeting which was attended by senior officers from Traffic Police, Delhi Police, civil defence force, Metro officials and other agency heads engaged in implementation of the ambitious car-rationing scheme, which came into force on January 1.
The government's move to ask the volunteers, comprising civil defence personnel, NCC and NSS cadets, to click pictures assumes significance as they were initially asked to focus on mindset change by resorting to polite tactics like handing out roses.
The government said that DTC would possibly ferry around 64 lakh commuters, much more than the usual figures, while Metro is expected to carry 32 lakh commuters against the previous data of 26 lakh daily.
Rai also mentioned that a few people want to ensure the failure of this scheme.
