Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari on Friday said that steps will be taken to restart e-rickshaw operations in Delhi after the high court gives its nod.
“The e-rickshaw issue is in the court. We have submitted our suggestions in the court. We have kept the provisions of the Light Motor Vehicle in our mind for the purpose of insurance in the event of an accident… We will be taking steps on commencing the operations of e-rickshaws after the court gives permission for it,” he told reporters on the sidelines of a workshop on ‘Rurban Mission’ here.
The high court on July 31 had ordered a ban on plying of e-rickshaws in the national capital, saying they are illegally running on Delhi roads and prima facie a hazard to other traffic as well citizens.
