The MCD on Wednesday told the Delhi High Court that there will be a complete ban on cycle rickshaws in Chandni Chowk from September 18 and battery-operated buses will ply in the area as an alternative transport system.

The counsel, appearing for MCD, told a Division Bench headed by acting Chief Justice Vijender Jain and Justice Kailash Ghambhir that tenders had already been floated for operating CNG buses on the route.

Earlier, the Bench had ordered a ban on all cycle rickshaws in the heavily congested Chandni Chowk area as it was causing serious traffic bottlenecks.
