The Traffic Management and Information Control Centre (TMICC) Operations Document has been developed as a part of the GEF-Sustainable Urban Transport Project (GEF-SUTP) undertaken by the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD), Government of India with support from Global Environment Facility (GEF) and World Bank (WB). The primary objective of GEFSUTP is to apply National Urban Transport Policy principles to achieve a paradigm shift in India’s urban transport system for more favourable sustainable developments and alternatives.
This document has been prepared under the guidance of Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD), Government of India with the primary objective to assist various government organisations and public authorities in India embarking on the process of establishing TMICCs. It is also intended to assist ITS practitioners towards proper implementation of TMICCs in Indian cities. It is developed as a reference guide for the various organisations and their staff working towards planning, designing, procuring, establishing, managing and monitoring the TMICCs. This document is also intended to be an essential reference for consulting organisations advising on planning and design of the TMICC facilities in various cities/towns in India.
This document relies upon the state-of-the-art review exercise undertaken by the consultants. As part of the review, several overseas and Indian cities were studied and the practices followed by them were examined. The outcome of the review was shared with various cities during the workshops and the feedback received has also shaped the development of this document.
