Mumbai: The Borivli RTO has unearthed a racket involving touts assisting people with forged documents to get new autorickshaw permits.
While the number of applications for new taxi permits is less, there are over a thousand applicants for autorickshaw permits.
"Following the government's decision to lift the restrictions on auto and taxi permits in the Mumbai metropolitan region, the transport deparment has been receiving several applications.
