NITI Aayog Chief Executive Officer Amitabh Kant has said India will shortly unveil a One Nation-One Card policy for public transport that will entail connectivity between various modes of transport. 


Addressing a function on Future Mobility Summit-2018 in New Delhi, Mr Kant said, a robust transportation sector is the backbone for the development of any economy. 


He said, the road transportation segment alone contributes to around four per cent of country's GDP with the segment still being heavily dependent on fossil fuels.


Mr Kant said, the focus of the mobility strategy is on sustainable modes of public transport, transport oriented planning, digitisation, among others. 


He said, the objective of the strategy is to plan for the citizens of India first, rather than focussing on vehicles alone, by providing sustainable mobility and accessibility by switching to cleaner mode of transportation such as electric, ethanol, methanol, CNG, LNG and hydrogen fuel cells.
