Rohana Kakar is Secretary of the Regional Transport Authority (RTA) in Quetta, Baluchistan Province. Rohana was the first female to be appointed to this post after 1966 because of her bravery and hard work. She maintains high professional integrity and is committed to her job, remaining in the field day and night resolving public transport issues.
She has done a great deal to curb malpractice in public transport such as the cancellation of illegal permits and licenses. She has been threatened many times, especially by transporters who demand favors in obtaining licenses and renewing their expired permits but she consistently refuses.
Rohana takes strict action against those caught driving without licenses and for this purpose she introduced Driving License Mechanism and made driving tests mandatory for everyone. Her efforts in modernizing public transport are remarkable, keeping in view the lack of resources in Baluchistan.
