“We have to work now on what will happen to the 5.7 million private cars that are currently running in our country. How these will be phased out, or disposed of or converted, they need to be regulated,’ She said.

DPDC Managing Director Bikash Dewan presided over the function. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Progress Motors and DPDC on the occasion.
