The Kejriwal government has given a big relief to the taxi drivers in the country’s capital Delhi. Let us tell you that the Delhi government has taken a big decision to increase the permit validity of taxis running on CNG and other clean fuel up to 15 years. With this decision of the government, the drivers of taxis in Delhi-NCR have got a big relief.
For the information of the people, let us tell you that the Transport Department has issued an order in this matter. In the notification issued by the government, it has been mentioned that the permit of all the taxis running on CNG/clean fuel in Delhi will now be valid for 15 years.
The permit extension will be applicable for those taxis which fulfill all the prescribed conditions prescribed in the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, CMVR, 1989 and DMVR, 1993.
Earlier it was valid only for this many years
Remind that the permit validity of whatever taxis were registered under City Taxi Scheme 2015 was only eight years earlier. While the validity of black and yellow cabs and other taxis was 15 years.
This was the reason that under Section 74 of the Motor Vehicles Act 1988, there was a demand to remove the ongoing disparity regarding the validity of permits. To remove this disparity, many taxi unions approached the Delhi High Court. In this matter, following the instructions of the Delhi High Court, the Delhi government has taken this big decision.
