New Delhi: The Delhi government on Friday launched a special drive against auto-rickshaw drivers and challaned 475 of them for violating various rules and refusing to ferry commuters.
Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai said the drive will continue for the next few days. "We have issued challans to 475 auto-rickshaw drivers for violating different rules and refusing to ferry passengers," he told reporters.
Rai said a complaint can be registered on 011-42400400 if any auto-rickshaw driver refuses to ferry commuters.
Earlier this week, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had warned of "strict action" against app-based taxis, including cancellation of permits and impounding of vehicles, for charging fares more than the rates prescribed by the government.
He had also said surge pricing by the app-based taxis is "daylight robbery".
