Amid the protest against alleged harassment, the Regional Transport Officer (RTO) Friday said that the list of routes on which e-rickshaws will ply to be issued in the next two days.
Talking to Asian News Hub (ANH), RTO Kashmir, Syed Shahnawaz Bukhari said that the e-rickshaws don’t require any kind of permit, generally they have been introduced in the market for last mile connectivity where the normal bus service doesn’t exist.
Usually in the transport sector, they require our permit, but there is no permit system, for e-rickshaws, he said.
However, he said that they have prepared a list of 60 areas so far where the public transport is not available, where major transport services are not available.
“It needs some kind of thought further to take care of the grievances of each and everyone. We will come up with a list in the next two days and we will encourage the local youth in these areas so that they can get employment avenues,” he said.
Pertinently, the e-rickshaws drivers staged protest against the alleged harassment by the traffic authorities, saying that they are not being allowed to ply on several routes.
