The ecocabs, or rickshaws on call, are the pride of Fazilka, where these vehicles have revolutionized the townas commuting habits. Keeping that in mind, the HC on Friday asked Graduates Welfare Association Fazilka (GWAF), which had evolved this specialized rickshaw, to conduct a study in Ludhiana for introducing ecocabs.
A division bench comprising Justice Surya Kant and Justice Ajay Tewari asked the secretary of the association, Navdeep Kumar Asija, to conduct a study and recommend the actions required to improve the situation. HC had taken suo motu cognizance on introduction of ecocabs in the region following media reports published about the concept in Fazilka. Thereafter, the court had issued notice to the state governments of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh, asking them to respond on the issue.
The ecocabs have already been introduced in Amritsar on experiment basis.
