A plan to impose a penalty of Rs 2,000 for obstructing movement of e-rickshaws and bicycles in Non-Motorised Vehicle (NMV) lanes, including cycle tracks, is in the pipelines, said a Delhi government official.
The Delhi government is preparing a proposal to levy a fine of Rs 2,000 according to which parking and other obstructions like encroachment on NMV-lanes will come under the violation of rules.
PWD Minister Satyendar Jain said the Delhi government sent the proposal to Lt Governor Najeeb Jung for his approval, pending which it will be implemented.
NMV lanes run along roughly 30 km of roadways in the capital, though much of the space is taken up either by parked vehicles or encroachments by locals. ”If the rules are implemented, the NMV lanes will be marked on roads to keep motorists from obstructing cycles and e-rickshaws,” Jain further said.
