Days after being rapped by the Delhi high court for allowing ‘illegal’ e-Rickshaws to ply, the Central govt on Friday filed an affidavit in High Court stating that e-rickshaws will be brought under Motor Vehicles Act.
The govt in its plea has sought two months time to finalise the guidelines, and has requested the court to revoke its ban on the operation of e-rickshaws in the city.
The hearing in the case is expected to come up in the afternoon. It remains to be seen whether the court of Justice BD Ahmed and Justice Siddharth Mridul, who had earlier this week said that the stay would continue till a ‘proper policy’ was in place, will accept the Government’s submissions.
According to the affidavit, the e-rickshaws will be brought under the Motor Vehicles Act 1988, and in case of any accidents with e-rickshaws,the compensation will be as per MV act.
A speed limit of maximum 25 km per hour and maximum carrying capacity of 4 person and 50 kg of cargo will be prescribed as per the draft guidelines.
