The DIG maintained that strict action in accordance with the law has also been ordered against ve­hicles having tinted glasses or moving in the city without num­ber plates.

Traffic wardens and officers have been directed to take strict action against double and wrong parking which causes traf­fic jam on city roads and create in-convenience for the tourists. He said special directives have been issued to the traffic war­dens to take strict action against one-wheelers.
