Angul, Aug 13: The Student Traffic Volunteers Scholarship Scheme (STVSS) has turned into a farce in Angul town of Odisha.
The STVSS was implemented in Angul town in January 2019 for traffic management during rush hours.
Mostly the student volunteers are deployed in the evening hours from 5-7 pm so that their study is not affected. They are receiving remuneration of Rs 100 per day for their duty.
Around 20 student traffic volunteers were engaged in traffic management of the town in two groups. Each group was assigned to attend duty for 15 days.
However, the STVSS has turned into a farce in the district for last few months.
The volunteers are not performing their duty following which the traffic management system has disrupted in the town.
Most of the volunteers are disappearing after signing the attendance register at Angul Police Station.
Angul SP Jagmohan Meena said the Angul Police Station IIC will oversee the attendance of student traffic volunteers and traffic in charge sub-inspectors will be assigned to watch them.
