Electric two-wheeler permit: In a major development, the Ministry of Road Transport has given a major relief to those who drive electric two-wheelers (E-2 wheelers) running on battery, methanol, and ethanol.

Now, these vehicles will not need to get a permit. These vehicles can be used in any way without a permit. Therefore, these vehicles can be used for commercial purposes as well. The decision will also be a relief for the tourism industry.

The two-wheeler transporter was not able to give these vehicles on rent legally. According to the order issued by the Ministry of Road Transport, the two-wheelers can now be used legally without a permit. The biggest benefit from this will be the two-wheeler transporters who give their vehicle on rent.

As per the report, the chairman of Bus and Car Operators Confederation of India (CMVR) Gurmeet Singh Taneja said that this decision will benefit those with electric two-wheelers (E-2 wheelers) and people associated with the tourist industry.
