The Delhi government is planning to simplify the registration process and expedite subsidies for e-rickshaws, in a bid to promote the eco-friendly mode of transportation. A three-member committee of transport department officials has prepared a report, said officials. “The government will provide a subsidy of Rs 30,000 to each e-rickshaw owner,” said officials.

However, this has been delayed by a cumbersome registration system. “The report has been sent to the departments concerned for their feedback. It will be further fine-tuned before implementation,” said the official.

    Every day 3000 new vehicles are being added to the already congested Delhi roads. There is no space to keep even one of your feet on the ground. The Delhi government or LG should consider stopping all new registrations of vehicles on Delhi roads. Time has come to act and fulfil the promise made by Shri Arvind Kejriwal to make New Delhi a world class city. It is really surprising as to how new vehicles are being added to the already choked roads of Delhi without conducting a feasibility study. There is no policy whatsoever for e rickshaws. These e rickshaws and even three wheeled autos blatantly disregard all rules of traffic and hinder smooth flow of traffic. They drive on extreme right hand side of the road without caring about the rights of other vehicle owners. E rickshaws have also started plying on main roads of Delhi which is not permissible to them as per existing instructions and rules in force. Let DELHITES breathe, itt is the biggest favour I have ever asked.
