The State government on Friday informed the Kerala High Court that the enforcement squad and flying squad were taking stringent action against auto rickshaw drivers who did not possess permits for plying in cities.

The government made the submission when a writ petition seeking to strictly implement an earlier Court directive to allow only drivers with city permits to ply within city limits came up for hearing. The petition was filed by the Association of City Permit Auto Drivers, Kochi.
