The Kerala High Court directive to the police on Monday to take action against unauthorised auto-rickshaw and taxi stands is expected to clear up space for pedestrians in the city. The direction is being viewed against the backdrop of the inaction by police, Motor Vehicles’ Department (MVD) and civic agencies in removing unscientifically located stands that obstruct the movement of vehicles and pedestrians.

The Regional Transport Authority (RTA) Board too had decided a few months ago to finalise a list of autorickshaw stands and the parking capacity of each stand. The MVD, traffic police, Kochi Corporation, the PWD and town planners had together identified roads that have a width of seven metres or more where stands can be permitted.

The Deputy Transport Commissioner (Ernakulam) P. A. Sainudeen said areas had been identified to locate the stands. “Local bodies must help by allotting land for the purpose so that the MVD and police can begin removing illegal stands.
