Noida police to issue serial numbers to cabs
As the incidences of rapes and robberies are increasing in Noida, the Noida police is planning to issue serial numbers to all the taxis plying in Noida and Grater Noida regions to ensure the safety of commuters. The Noida police is planning to implement this by the start of 2014.

A senior traffic Police official, Surendra Kumar Yadav said, “The Noida police is planning to issue serial numbers to the cabs. And ones the plan is finalized, the procedure will be started without any delay.”

This step taken by the Noida police is basically for the police and the commuters. The serial numbers will be issued after taking the details like name, address, mobile numbers of the driver and the owner of the cab, and also the registration number of the vehicle.

This will enable the police to trace the involvement in the case of robberies, rape or any kind of misbehaviour with the commuters. “Often commuters don't know the particulars of the drivers and it becomes very difficult for us to taken any kind of action against the cab driver. But, this new serial number technique will help us to trace the cab driver,” said Yadav.

He also asked the people of Noida, who often use cabs to check the card with all the required information and the logo of Noida Police inside the cab. “If the commuter doesn't find any kind of such card inside the cab, then he/she should call up the police at 100 and inform us about it.”

The involvement of cab drivers was seen in many cases of robbery and misbehaviour in recent days. In a recent case, where Faizan Alam, an accountant working with a restaurant was intoxicated, looted and thrown out from the cab, by the cab driver. Cases like this are getting repeated now and then in Noida, and this has forced the Noida police to tighten the security measures in the city.
