The business processing outsourcing (BPO) centres have worked out an arrangement with the Delhi Traffic Police department to alert its executives to avoid congested stretches in the Capital.
BPOs' apex association, Business Processing Industries Association of India (BPIAI), will now use the available helplines being provided by the Delhi Traffic Police department to get to know about the congested roads and diversions well in advance and accordingly guide their executives and cab operators to avoid such routes in Delhi.
The decision was taken in a meeting between the BPIAI and the Delhi Traffic Police recently. The BPIAI will now hold a similar meeting with the traffic police departments of Gurgaon and Noida also.
"Last Thursday, we had a meeting with the special commissioner of traffic police, Ajay Chadha, and his team in Delhi to discuss the issue of traffic jams and congested roads. The traffic police officials offered us the helpline numbers to get information about the traffic diversion plans well in advance. Our people will use these helplines and pass on the information about congested locations to our executives and also the cabs that ferry them from Gurgaon and Noida to their homes in Delhi," said Deepak Ohliyan, the BPIAI president.
