Considering recent incidents of crime on school campuses, a high-level committee of the Delhi Government on 13 September 2017 recommended a proposal to ensure that institutes monitor buses and vans ferrying students.

The proposal of the committee is likely to be made part of the Delhi School Cab Rules, 2017, which will come into effect by the end of 2017. The rules will be framed by the Transport Department through amendments in the School Cab Policy, 2007.

The rules will address issues like maximum seating capacity, verification of staff, besides ensuring responsibility of school administrations towards safety of children.
