Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) has decided to control movement of battery driven auto-rickshaws to ease the city's growing traffic.
The auto-rickshaws will be divided into two colours and would move on the city streets in rotations. Both sets will be on the roads together at specified times and on Fridays.
The decisions were taken at a joint meeting in Rajshahi Nagar Bhaban on Sunday. They will take effect from July 1, Rajshahi Mayor AHM Khairuzzaman Liton said yesterday.
The auto-rickshaw owners and drivers sat with the corporation officials and agreed to follow the new policies.
