Staff Correspondent
The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission on Tuesday published the guidelines on the licensing procedure of Vehicle Tracking Services and sought applications for licences. This will facilitate the introduction of modern telecommunication services, it claimed.
   ‘The Vehicle Tracking Licence or permission to be issued under the guidelines will authorise an operator to establish, operate and maintain Vehicle Tracking Services in Bangladesh. No person or business entity shall be allowed to provide Vehicle Tracking Services without a valid licence or permission issued by the commission,’ said BTRC’s press release.
   ‘Licence under the guidelines will be issued by the commission under the open licensing procedure. Any interested person or legal entity complying with the terms and conditions of the guidelines may apply for the licence,’ said the press release.
   The release said there is no time limit for collecting and submitting the required application.
   ‘The Vehicle Tracking System will be a useful method of gaining considerable operational efficiency in managing large fleets of vehicles. It will help to mitigate the major safety concerns that exist in Bangladesh’s transport sector. The service will offer its customers innovative vehicle tracking and management solutions that will bring about efficiency in their vehicle operations and thus improve the transport sector,’ said the release.
   It will offer a wide range of services like efficiently managing fleets of vehicles, locating roaming sales professionals, tracing stolen vehicles, reducing road accidents and unauthorized or inefficient vehicle usage, and it will also generate revenue for the exchequer.
   ‘The use of simple cost-effective Vehicle Tracking Solutions will certainly increase productivity, reduce operational cost, improve customer service and enhance security of both the driver and vehicle,’ claimed the BTRC.
