Battery-powered 3-wheeled vehicles will not be allowed on the highway

The Supreme Court has ruled that battery-powered three-wheelers will not be allowed on the highway.

An appellate bench headed by Chief Justice Hasan Fayez Siddiqui passed the order on Monday.

Lawyers Tania Amir and Moniruzzaman Asad appeared for the court.

Tania Ameer told reporters, “We have applied to the Appellate Division and mentioned that the livelihood of thousands of people in the country is involved with these vehicles.” Moreover, the government has made a draft policy for the import, manufacture and operation of these vehicles. The policy did not allow these transports to run on highways. Moreover, the policy says to keep charger stations on the road like petrol pumps. And the lithium battery easy bikes that are running now, these will be finished by 2025. As a result, this transport will also become environmentally friendly.

“After seeing this application, the High Court has amended the order. “These battery-powered three-wheelers and easy bikes will not be allowed on the highway,” the order said.

The battery-powered three-wheeled vehicles are known by various names including auto and easybike. Although there are several lakh three wheelers and easy bikes in the country, there is no official permission for the movement of these vehicles.

In a statement, Khalequzzaman Lipon, convener of the Rickshaw, Battery Rickshaw and Easybike Drivers Struggle Council and Imran Habib Rumon, Member Secretary, expressed relief over the Supreme Court’s order allowing easybikes and three-wheelers to operate across the country except highways.

As a result of this order of the Appellate Division, these vehicles were allowed to run on all roads except highways.
