CBSE makes it compulsory to have GPS in school buses

GPS is compulsory in school buses


Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), has made an important and a smart move which will ease the tension of the parents. Now, CBSE has made it mandatory to install GPS system in school buses. This advanced technology will help to track the vehicle and it will provide a solidity in the security system and will ensure the safety of the children.

According to the new guidelines by CBSE, GPS system can only be installed once it gets approval from Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI).

This decision came after seeing a hike in road accidents of school buses recently. According to the police records almost 35 school buses in Delhi met with accidents last year and these were the recorded incidents, there are many incidents which went off the police records. To prevent school goings get exposed to such mishaps, the CBSE has asked all the affiliated schools to submit an annual safety transport system report approved by the traffic police.

But now, with the GPS technology the exact location of the bus can be tracked easily, which, in turn, will put the bus journey under the analysis of school administration.

CBSE has taken many steps in order to minimise these accidents like in past, they introduced a technology called 'Speed Governor' which measures and regulates the speed of the vehicle. Unfortunately, only few schools took this security step seriously while others just stepped aside.

As informed by the additional SP (traffic) Delhi, Anjana Tiwari, so far no school has approached them to get a report approval.
