Indore (Madhya Pradesh): To mark World Car Free Day, Indore Municipal Corporation and Traffic Department have urged people not to take out their cars on No Car Day in the city on September 22.
Appealing to the residents, mayor Pushyamitra Bhargav suggested using public transport instead of cars on September 22.
