The Administration today closed down the portal for the registration of non-electric two-wheelers, as the target of 1,609 vehicles set under the revised policy was achieved this afternoon. Till Saturday evening, the slots for registration of only 43 two-wheelers were left for the financial year and the portal was closed around 2 pm today. It was the third time in the calendar year and second time in the financial year when the registration of non-electric twowheelers was stopped. After the Administration revised the Electric Vehicle (EV) Policy on October 18, the quota for registration of nonelectric two-wheelers was extended by 1,609 units for the financial year. The city has 10 automobile dealers who collectively sell around 20,000 non-electric two-wheelers annually, nearly 1,600 each month. During the festival season, this number can surge to around 4,000 per month.

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The English edition apart, the 133-year-old Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
