Heeding the warning of Transport Minister Pranajit Singha Roy against illegal e-rickshaws, the state Transport department on Saturday served a notice ordering all the unauthorized e-rickshaw owners to withdraw their e-rickshaws from roads.
The minister had last month issued a warning to all unauthorized e-rickshaws owners while maintaining that these illegal e-rickshaws will not be allowed to run in the state anymore.
“According to the order issued by the High Court of Tripura, driving unauthorized e-rickshaws is illegal. Moreover, all the e-rickshaw drivers need to get their valid driving licences within the next 30 days,” said the Joint Transport Commissioner.
Furthermore, if any driver is found driving an unauthorized or without valid driving licence then the e-rickshaw will be seized by the Transport department.
