E rickshaw owners to get 15000 subsidy on registration
New Delhi, May 26: Delhi government on Monday said E rickshaw owners to get 15000 subsidy on registration of their vehicle with the transport department and also announced 1,880 new buses to strengthen public transport in a few days. Transport Minister Gopal Rai made the announcements at the AAP government’s open Cabinet session at Central Park here and said that 10,000 buses would be added to the DTC fleet in the next five years. “More than 24,000 e-rickshaw drivers have been given driving licenses and PSV badges after we took office. We have also decided that e-rickshaw drivers would be given Rs 15,000 from the government’s part for every new registration. “Delhi’s lifeline are its buses. In the recent past, with a special purpose, the whole DTC fleet was brought to its knees. No new buses came in the last three years so 1,880 buses will be bought in the next few days and the department is working on that,” Rai said.
