AITWA said the worst part was that it had been getting hundreds of phone calls from its members asking for help and direction on the issue of difficulty due to ground level level authorities.

The Association asked Mr. Gadkari to define roles and authorities at ground level, so that the Ministry of Home Affairs guidelines could be adhered to. "There is a need to streamline the pass system. Some online system by which an e-pass is issued in consultation with State/UT governments, should be worked out," the AITWA president said.

It requested Mr. Gadkari to allow drivers to be allowed to travel interstate to reach vehicles, so that the availability of trucks improve.

"Do not scare transporters who are trying to keep supply chain live for essential goods. Encourage them and provide them with an insurance cover, " Mr. Arya said.
