Lucknow, October 19: In order to make the police stations of the state clean, on the instructions of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the vehicles lying unclaimed will be auctioned soon. Along with this, the vehicles which have been declared unusable in the police department will also be auctioned soon so that the police department can get new vehicles in their place.
Under the chairmanship of Additional Chief Secretary Home Avnish Kumar Awasthi, discussions were held on the auction of unusable vehicles in a high-level meeting held at the Command Center located at Lok Bhavan on Monday. It was informed in the meeting that instructions have been given by the government to abolish the presently prevailing auction system in respect of vehicles of police department and conduct auction (e-auction) on the basis of contract made with MSTC like the transport department. The process of auction of vehicles and other items of security forces CRPF, BSF, SSB, Chennai Police, Delhi Police and Maharashtra Police is being done by MSTC under the Central Government.
The auction process is done online by MSTC in which about 70 thousand buyers are registered. This allows vehicles to be auctioned off easily. With this arrangement, the registered contractors themselves take the decision to purchase the vehicles after on-site inspection of the vehicles, which encourages the local buyers to buy the vehicles. Apart from Secretary Home Tarun Gaba and Special Secretary Home RP Singh, officers of MSTC were also present in the meeting.
