Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): Registration of e-rickshaws has been closed in Ujjain for months, yet a large number of e-rickshaws are being sold every day. Due to a lack of information, people are buying e-rickshaws, but heavy fines are being imposed on them for not being registered. Some e-rickshaw drivers submitted a memorandum to the collector to stop the sale of e-rickshaws in the city here on Wednesday.

According to the information, after the formation of Mahakal Lok, there has been a flood of e-rickshaws in the city. Although collector Asheesh Singh banned the registration of electric rickshaws about 4 months back, the agencies are continuously selling electric passenger vehicles.

Most of the people who buy e-rickshaw are from low-income groups and it is only when they reach the RTO office that they come to know about the collector's order.
