The state government's move to computerise and upgrade its transport department got a thumbs up from Kenya, which has evinced interest to replicate it in its transport ministry.
In a communique to secretary (transport), Francis Meja, Registrar of Motor Vehicles, Kenya has sought the assistance of the state government and its agencies for automating its road transport sector, an official spokesman said on Wednesday. It has also expressed a desire to replicate the centralised data system and use CCTV cameras to improve traffic regulation.
The Kenyan government has further sought assistance to implement smart driver licenses and motor vehicle number plates. It also wants to replicate the model being adopted by the government for sharing data through both Internet and mobile technologies.
Meja has communicated that Kenya would like to send six representatives of Multi Agency Committee, constituted by them, to study the upgradation process of the transport department, the spokesman said. The delegation is expected to visit here next week, he added.
