Keriwal visits Burari transport authority office, directs opening of vehicle fitness test centres across city
The Transport Department banned the entry of touts and took several steps like installation of CCTV cameras to check their free access at the Burari Transport Authority where several irregularities were found by the chief minister during his surprise visit in July.
A senior Transport Department official said the association pleaded that agents and their families were suffering as their livelihood was hit due to the department's action such as setting up of help desks for applicants to discourage touting at the authority.
The sprawling Burari Authority issues fitness certificates and license to commercial vehicles, including autorickshaws and taxis.
All-India Tanzeem-e-Insaaf, a non-governmental organisation, has petitioned to Lt Governor Anil Baijal, seeking help for the jobless touts.
