The Regional Transport Office (RTO) Pune will auction 600 abandoned vehicles that are lying in the RTO headquarter office premises in Sangamwadi for a year.

These vehicles will be auctioned once the model code of conduct for the Lok Sabha elections is relaxed.

These vehicles include two wheelers, cars, buses, tempos and trucks.

A senior RTO official, requesting anonymity said, “We have scheduled a phase-wise auction of these abandoned vehicles. In the first phase 250 vehicles will be auctioned. However, the process of the auction has been delayed as the model code of conduct for the elections had come into effect on March 10.”

According to RTO officials, these vehicles, have been abandoned by their owners after the vehicles were confiscated by the RTO officials for the violation of RTO rules like no fitness certificates, and non payment of road.

However, these vehicles are a hindrance as there is not enough parking space at the Pune RTO office.
