The Delhi High Court ordered all cycle rickshaw to get registration without which they will not be able to run it on the streets of Chandni Chowk from April 1. This order has come up in the wake of the Chandni Chowk beautification case. Chandni Chowk is one of the oldest and also the busiest markets of Delhi and it has been waiting for a lot of years now for a revamp. The market needs to be made into a vehicle-free and pedestrian friendly zone.

The redevelopment plan of Chandni Chowk involves a vehicle-free zone, a multi-level parking at Gandhi Maidan, etc.

In November 2016, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) was suggested by the Delhi High Court to grant registration numbers in the form of digitised bar codes to rickshaws plying in Chandni Chowk, so that they can be easily scanned by the police in order to find if anyone is violating the rules. The bench comprising of Justices B D Ahmed and Jayant Nath suggested the registration of rickshaws after an NGO alleged that civic authorities were harassing and discouraging rickshaw pullers them from getting their registration done. The NGO represented the rickshaws owners and pullers.
