CHENNAI: Anyone with a ration card can pay a fee of Rs.385 and apply for an autorickshaw permit to the Transport Department, as per the new norms for the permits that will come into force shortly.
Following the announcement in the Assembly that the issuing of autorickshaw permits would be liberalised, Transport Minister K.N.Nehru said, “A Government Order amending the rules will be issued within the next couple of days.” Speaking to The Hindu on the sidelines of an event organised to flag off six new bus servicess from Ekkaduthangal on Wednesday, Mr.Nehru said, “Autorickshaw unions want the ‘open' permit to be granted only to drivers. Such categorisation will only lead to a new type of control. A meeting will be organised with the unions shortly to sort out differences.” The six new bus routes are K18cut (Ekkaduthangal - Broadway via Saidapet), M10E (Ekkaduthangal - Broadway via T.Nagar), M21GExt (Ekkaduthangal - Broadway via Kotturpuram), M154E (Ekkaduthangal - Vellavedu), M88E (Ekkaduthangal - Kundrathur) and 554B (Ekkaduthangal to Sunguvarchatram).
