Rajkot: The Rajkot traffic police has

"We have implemented the action plan by asking
autoricksaw owners to make registration of their vehicles in
traffic branch compulsory," traffic police officer L S Jadeja
said.
"The registration number will be carrying all details
about the owner and driver of the three-wheeler and its
stand-post will help police to nab gangs involved in looting
passengers travelling in auto-rickshaws," Jadeja said.

The rickshaws would be given new `T` number which is
compulsory to be printed on left side on front mirror, Jadeja
said, adding this make passengers as well as police to easily
identify the three-wheeler during any incident of robbery.
Nearly 4,000 auto-rickshaws are registered with city`s
Road Transport Office and new `T` number which carries all the
details will help police to nab robbers using auto-rickshaw
with fake number plates.

The new action plan has to be implemented after
