Around 2,000 diesel autos in Gurgaon may soon be replaced by e-rickshaws as part of the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram’s (MCG) plan to phase out diesel autos in the city. The move, officials hope, will take Gurgaon a step closer to becoming pollution-free.

According to officials from the MCG, a special meeting will be held to discuss this plan on Wednesday, which will see MCG Commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh, as well as Regional Transport Authority (RTA) secretary and officials from Traffic Police in attendance.

“An interaction will also be facilitated with owners and drivers of e-rickshaws during this meeting on Wednesday. To make Gurgaon pollution-free, the MCG has decided to replace 2000 diesel autos with e-rickshaws in the first phase of this plan,” said Additional Commissioner Jaspreet Kaur.
