GPS Installation Mandatory in Trucks in Arunachal Pradesh
Itanagar: In order to check the illegal cutting of trees and its transportation, the Changlang district administration on Monday announced mandatory installation of Global Positioning System (GPS) into trucks for monitoring their movement.
The trucks transporting woods have been directed to ply only during daytime.
This decision has been taken to curb the massive deforestation in the state. As per the recently released report of Forest Survey of India, Arunachal Pradesh has lost around 257 sq kms of forests during the period of 2019-21.
As per reports, around 50 trucks within Changlang district were fitted with GPS to track their movement.
