“In last four days, our team has checked over 650 auto-rickshaws and seized about 20 auto-rickshaws which were running without a permit, pollution under control certificate, and driving licence,” RTO said.
The checking drive was launched in Vijay Nagar, Sukhliya, and Palasia areas.
He added that they will continue to act against such vehicles along with cracking a whip on polluting vehicles.
