E-Carts and E-Rickshaws Freed from Permit Requirements

India’s Ministry of Road Transport and Highways issued today a Gazette Notification that serves to free e-rickshaws and e-carts from permit requirements.

According to the notification, the provisions of the sub-section (1) of section 66 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 will not apply to e-carts and e-rickshaws (as defined in section 2A of the said Act,) that are used for carrying goods or passengers with personal luggage.

This means that vehicles that are registered as e-carts or e–rickshaws will not require any permits. State Governments can however impose restrictions under appropriate traffic laws on plying of these vehicles in specific areas or specific roads.
