Birgunj to make e-rickshaw driver’s licence mandatory
Narayani Transportation Management Office has called on all e-rickshaw drivers in Birgunj to sign up for driving test
Oct 24, 2016-Following repeated complaints of reckless driving and traffic rule violations by electric rickshaw drivers, authorities are planning to make driving licence test mandatory for all e-rickshaw drivers in Birgunj.
To that end, the Narayani Transportation Management Office has called on all e-rickshaw drivers in Birgunj Sub-metropolis to sign up for the driving licence test which will take place after the Chhath festival. There are around 800 e-rickshaws operating in Birgunj.
As the government has announced 100 percent excise duty waiver on electric vehicles in this year’s budget, import of e-rickshaw has increased in recent times.
