Delhi To Launch Special Drive Against Unapproved e-Rickshaws

Written By:

The Delhi Transport Department has decided to launch a special drive against "illegal dealers" selling unapproved e-rickshaws in the National capital.

The unapproved e-rickshaws sold by unauthorised dealers are a potential threat to life of commuters as well as road users in the national capital.

The decision was made after an e-rickshaw association representative raised the issue in a meeting with Transport minister Gopal Rai.

"All Motor Licensing Officers have been directed to launch a special drive against the unauthorised dealers selling e-rickshaws and file complaints with Delhi Police by lodging FIR against them," said, a government official.

Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had formerly announced a subsidy scheme for e-rickshaws under which the government would provide Rs 30,000 to drivers as financial assistance for retrofitting them into e-rickshaws and registration of the vehicles.
