The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Road Transport and Bridges Ministry on Thursday (11 July) emphasized the importance of incorporating psychological tests while appointing BRTC drivers.

It also put importance on increasing monitoring on the licensing system and ensuring maximum utilisation of vehicles to keep the Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) profitable.

The recommendations of the committee came from its second meeting held at the Sangsad Bhaban.

Chairman of the Committee Rejwan Ahammad Taufiq presided over the meeting where other members were present.

In the meeting, a detailed discussion was held regarding the number of vehicles along with the current routes of BRTC, annual income and expenditure statement, problems and prospects of the organization and existing manpower.
