Transport department officials said once a final approval is given, people with auto-rickshaw permits will be allowed to buy and run these cars. The department has already moved an application in the court to further relax the cap of one lakh on auto-rickshaws.
Officials said companies which have sought bulk permits to run 250 autos under the corporate scheme will be allowed to operate these vehicles. The fare structure will be the same as auto-rickshaws.
Goswami said the department has been asked to study the technical details of four-wheel autos and the feasibility of its running in the Capital and submit the report within two weeks. But sources said the state transport authority has already approved the introduction of such auto-rickshaws.
