“E-rickshaws are contributing to traffic congestion in Noida. Approximately 17,000 e-rickshaws in Gautam Budh Nagar will be assigned specific paths to enhance traffic flow,” Yadav said.

The officer said that key areas like Sector 15 Metro, Rajnigandha Chowk in Sector 16, Botanical Garden Metro, Sector 18, Sector 12/22, City Centre, Sector 52, and Model Town Crossing have been significantly impacted, inconveniencing daily commuters.

“To address the issue comprehensively, authorities will convene another meeting involving transport department officials, Noida authority representatives, and stakeholders, including e-rickshaw drivers, to finalise the designated routes,” the officer informed.

The exponential rise in e-rickshaw numbers, from mere 10 in 2011 to a staggering 17,162 in 2024, as per data from the Regional Transport Office authority, has exacerbated congestion-related issues.
