The ‘Indian Transport Industry’ Report delves into the current status of the different modes of transport – road, railways, waterways and air. The article ‘Electric vehicles vs India’s energy security: Emission scenarios’ draws a comparison between electric vehicles and internal combustion engine vehicles in the perspective of pollution. The article ‘Inland waterways: A neglected mode’ discusses the waterways as an integrated part of the existing transport system. ‘Killer highways’ talks about accidents and possible ways of reducing highway mishaps.The article ‘New technologies for high speed roads’ gives information about bituminous surfacing technologies. ‘Licensed to loot’ enlists the woes of the transport industry.
