DMK plan on autorickshaw permits stumbles

The DMK Government’s plan to allow more autorickshaw permits for Chennai has run into some trouble, with two Unions seeking clear guidelines on qualifications. Clearly, although the Government tried to push the measure as a pro-driver, pro-passenger effort, it has not washed with the existing set of operators.

It would be in the fitness of things if Minister K. N. Nehru came out with a transparent policy that can be publicly scrutinized. The tendency of governments to pretend to be helping when in fact they are pushing sectional, hidden interests inevitably gets exposed.
