Indore is evolving and developing at a phenomenal rate. In just a few years, the face of the city has become completely unrecognisable owing to the smart city developments. The latest addition to the smart city development is the new traffic signal and management system, which is set to bring about a change on the roads.

What's the update?

As part of the plan to completely revamp Indore's traffic system, two private players have come forward to change the way people travel in the city. They're going to install new and revamped traffic management systems which will completely streamline the way that we travel. Apart from just that, they also aim to redo the traffic signals, which have been deemed redundant as of now.

What new developments can you expect?

As part of the traffic management system, one can expect a slew of new additions to the city. Of the major additions to the city's traffic management system, the ATSCS (Adaptive Traffic Signal Control System), Red Light Violation and Speed Violation systems are the new ones. The ATSCS is a technology that uses radars to eases out congestion at crossroads and other congested places in the city.

The other two, traffic light and speed violations are especially beneficial for catching wrongdoers and rule breakers. These technologies help people follow traffic rules and the police to catch those that flout them. Using a series of cameras and speed traps, the technology can identify violators and send them e-challans. These are set to be installed in high traffic areas and places with flyovers and highways.

Finally, there will be an addition of over 200 CCTV cameras all across the city. These will not only help keep a watch on traffic but also on the daily city activities.

With Indore's constantly developing city scape, it can be easy to get lost in the ever expanding sphere of the city. Once the new developments are complete, the city will go on the fast track to becoming more developed than ever before.

Fuel prices are some of the most easily affected commodity, every time a global situation arises. Be it a trade deal, an imposition or war, fuel prices fluctuate like a lightbulb about to get a short-circuit. Hence, amid the global coronavirus outbreak, which has been declared a pandemic by WHO, fuel prices around the world have dropped down.

Have you ever been running late to the airport because of the sheer number of bags you have? If your answer is yes, then IGI airport has got you covered. Now, in a new initiative by the DIAL (Delhi International Airport Ltd) you can have your stuff transported to the IGI airport directly from your place of stay.

Delhi International Airport Ltd., the operators of IGI airport have partnered up with a Bengaluru based company called CarterX. In fact, this facility is not limited to be availed by only those taking off from Delhi, it can also be used to get your luggage delivered to your residence when you touchdown at IGI.

What's the update?

In a bid to make travelling to and from IGI airport easier for passengers, DIAL has undertaken a partnership with CarterX to start a service where a commuter's luggage can be transported to and from the IGI airport directly from their place of residence. This, essentially, is a step towards making checking in to the airport a breeze.

Additionally, if you're short on time and are planning to take the direct metro link to the airport, this is a great way to ensure that you don't have to lug your stuff around.

To avail the service, you will have to pay a fee based on the number, weight and size of the bags. The fee will also take into account distance to and from the airport, meaning the prices are going to be dynamically triggered. At any rate, the base fare is ₹299, which goes up depending on the aforementioned factors. For every 5 kilograms over 20kgs, an additional ₹100 will be charged.

This is certainly one of the most passenger forward moves we have seen DIAL take. The IGI airport is at par with the best airports in the world and this is something that should take its rating all the way up. DIAL and CarterX have both stated that with this service, they aim to cover the entirety of Delhi, including neighbouring states- Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
