Odd even: 475 auto drivers challaned for refusing to ferry commuters

"We have issued challans to 475 auto-rickshaw drivers for violating different rules and refusing to ferry passengers," he told reporters.

Rai said a complaint can be registered on 011-42400400 if any auto-rickshaw driver refuses to ferry commuters.

Earlier this week, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had warned of "strict action" against app-based taxis, including cancellation of permits and impounding of vehicles, for charging fares more than the rates prescribed by the government.

He had also said surge pricing by the app-based taxis is "daylight robbery".
