Women could soon be able to drive autos in Delhi if new rules are agreed.

People taking flights to Delhi could soon see women driving autos in the city as a group calls for female drivers to be allowed.

At present, women are not allowed to drive the vehicles but are permitted to get behind the wheel of the taxis around the city, but calls are now being made for this rule to be changed, the Times of India reported.

Among those calling for a change to the rules to be brought in is the company Priyadarshini Cabs.

Commenting on the attempts to change the law, a spokesperson from the firm said: “It is high time we had women actively involved in the city’s public transport. It will also ensure better services for women and senior citizens.”

The campaigners have also noted that women are likely to be better mannered following a rise in complaints about the attitude of auto drivers.

Travellers on flights to Delhi looking to get around the city on public transport could take advantage of a new park and ride scheme that has been introduced.
