The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) will implement the rickshaw policy by the end of this year to stop the duplicity of licenses issued to rickshaw-pullers. Under the new scheme, chips would be installed to track rickshaw pullers.
The civic agency has decided license only to owners of rickshaws. As per the policy, rickshaw-pullers will also get health insurance and a yearly health check-up. MCD would be enable to get all data related to a particular rickshaw, including name of the licensee the period for which the license is issued and the particular zone from where it was issued with the help of a scanner machine. Soon MCD will invite bids from companies to install chips in rickshaws. The company will charge an yearly fees from each rickshaw-puller, and provide them social welfare services like health check up. The agency is also planning to issue smart card for rickshaw pullers.
