Delhi Traffic Police is all set to involve citizens in managing traffic by forming Traffic Consultative Committees (TCCs). Panels will be formed in 43 circles and five ranges targeting at least 10,000 people to become part of this campaign. At the level of circle the panel will have a traffic inspector, members of resident welfare associations (RWAs), public representatives and market bodies. While at the range level a DCP, representatives from road-owning agencies, NGOs and social leaders, will be included.
The Delhi Traffic Police will upload a form on their website and Facebook page. Those interested and eligible will have to send the filled form to the address given on the website via post. Credentials of the applicants for TCC will be verified by the concerned police stations.
The TCC will help to identify and resolve the problems related to traffic management at the ground level. In case a problem is not resolved at the level of TCC at circle level, it will be referred to the TCC at range level and in case it is not resolved at that level it will be referred to Joint Commissioner of Traffic Police.
