Unemployment is turning out to be a worse demon than the onset of the pandemic itself, and over the last couple of months, the governments have tried to find ways to slay it. The Karnataka government, in an attempt to generate more employment and offer convenience to the people of the state, has launched the Karnataka Electric Bike Taxi scheme.

Through this scheme, the state government aims to enhance the ease of living of the people and to also create employment and entrepreneurial opportunities in Urban mobility.

What is the Karnataka Electric Bike Taxi Scheme 2021

The main objective of the scheme essentially is to reduce the travel time and inconvenience faced by the public, travelling from their homes to bus stands, railways and metro services, especially in Bengaluru city.

The Karnataka Electric Bike Taxi scheme will serve as a bridge between public transport and daily travellers.

Benefits of implementing the Karnataka Electric Bike Taxi Scheme

Under the implementation of the scheme, the Bike Taxi scheme aims to eventually boost the creation of self-employment and alongside that create an eco-friendly, fuel conservation-oriented avenue that will also strengthen public transport and encourage the establishment of related industries.

The newly launched scheme has a lot of potentials and will give an opportunity to individuals, partnership firms and companies to participate.

Vehicle registration in the Electric Bike Taxi Scheme

The vehicles registered under the Electric Bike Taxi scheme in Karnataka will come under the transport category. For this purpose, each vehicle owner will have to apply by filling Vehicle registration application form. After the registration process is complete, the government will provide several exemptions like permits, tax and the state government will also offer financial benefits to the electric vehicle manufacturers.

Under the implementation of the scheme, electric bikes, organisations or individuals will now be able to register their e-bikes as taxis. However, the bikes will have to clearly mention the words “Bike Taxi” in order to receive the due status. Furthermore, the e-bike taxi company will have to provide insurance coverage for the rider and the owner.

The impact the scheme will have

To begin with, the scheme is a long-awaited step in the right direction. This scheme will help people utilise their well-earned assets to earn a livelihood and engage in eco-friendly activities while doing so.

Not just that, but the unemployed youth of the state will now have an opportunity to make back all the money they may have lost over the months, considering how the pandemic and the loss of a job ended up eating into their savings.

Wrapping this up

With the introduction of the scheme, the people of Karnataka now have a renewed sense of hope to get back to those days where income poured on a regular basis in their accounts. They now have a chance to repair their financial situation and deal with the ills of the lockdown in a more streamlined manner minus the chances of uncertainty – like transportation, irrespective of the circumstances, will always be an in-demand job, thereby offering people a sense of job security.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
