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.
