AITWA CAMPAIGNING FOR “NOT TO BUY TRUCK” IN FY 20-21
TNI, New Delhi: AITWA, All India Transporters Welfare Association issued an advisory for its members not to buy any new trucks for the entire financial year 2020-21. This will help in utilizing the trucks which are already on the roads, mostly owned by single truck owners.
AITWA is a body representing over 9 million road transport service providers in India.
“As our sector is going through financial turmoil during the ongoing pandemic, we are constrained to adopt measures to safeguard our businesses and trade in general.” AITWA said in a letter addressed to the members of the road transport fraternity.
AITWA has been emphasizing and written to Govt, also about the lack of stimulus economic package given to the transport sector therefore they decided to become self-reliant.
It is to be worth to quote from the letter of AITWA, “Till now there is no stimulus from the Government of India to support our industry. We need to be self-reliant as suggested by our Prime Minister,”
“We strongly feel for our trade to survive, the fresh supply of trucks needs to be stalled. Unless we help ourselves, we can’t expect anyone to help us. Our mantra for self-reliance will be #NoTruckForMe,” AITWA said.
