The Delhi Traffic Police on Wednesday told the Delhi High Court that they had identified 402 spots across the city as designated auto stands.
"Following the court direction, 402 places have been notified in consultation with the area traffic officers concerned as 'halt and go' TSR stands. There will be space for five autos any time", Jyoti Singh, counsel for the traffic police told a Bench.
She said a notification had been issued in this regard and published in newspapers.
But when the petitioner said a detailed list of all spot was not part of the notification, Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Manmohan asked Singh to ensure the exhaustive list be put on the traffic police website.
The traffic police said they would take the help of civic agencies to put up signages at each spot.
According to the PIL, there was not a single legally authorised stand for the 55,000-odd auto rickshaws registered in the capital.
