NextMile carries the responsibility of disseminating information on one of the most successful ICT initiatives of the Country – the mission mode National Transport Computerization Project. In every project, one important requirement stands out above all others – the need to make all information related to the project available to all involved so that they are able to look beyond their own levels or domains and break free of being the proverbial frog in the well. There is also the need to make users aware of the services made available so that they are able to avail those services.
NextMile intends to fulfil these critical requirements.
For personnel who work for the Project, NextMile carries the responsibility of bringing information on what is being planned for so that they are in a position to react and contribute meaningfully to a Project that is being acknowledged as a noteworthy success story of ICT initiatives in e-Governance in India.

Editors note

A Janmastomi message from Dr Mahesh Chandra

Former DDG NIC and Head of Group Dr Mahesh Chandra, who had pioneered the implementation of the National Transport Computerization Project in the Country, had written in to us with an enlightening yet ironic piece on Road Safety. We present it to you….

"Today is the day of birth of Lord Sri Krishna the world’s first exemplary safe driver (charioteer) of the motorless vehicle (rath). It was He who had made the 'rath tenet' one of the 64 tenets of the times (Mahabharata Age), according to which the mind was defined as the driver of the vehicle, the body as the vehicle/rath and life’s journey as the road, and He had ordained how to keep all the three safe and secure. It is in the same Country that neither the driver nor the road or the vehicle is safe today. India occupies the first place in the number of casualties in road accidents. In spite of adequate efforts of the government and authorities, no road safety culture has been able to gain traction in the Country today like it had in ancient times. Lord Sri Krishna has remained our example and source of inspiration taking whose name all drivers every day drive their vehicles on the road, and pray that no accidents happen even in adverse situations. Come, on the occasion of this pious day of Janmastomi, let us all try to become exemplary drivers like Lord Sri Krishna."(translated from the original Hindi)
