Delhi has more than 500,000 cycle rickshaws, which is thus, obviously, the current size of the market. But the government has decided that the people don't need so many of them, and has fixed a limit of 99,000 licenses (of which less than 75,000 have been given out).
This makes more than 80 per cent of Delhi's cycle rickshaws illegal. This government created illegality exposes the pullers to constant harassment and extortion. One study suggests that on average a bribe of Rs 200 per month is paid by each cycle rickshaw puller. That makes the total amount stolen by the municipal and police officers at Rs. 80 million a month!
Why why they run the country so foolishly and why there is no reform committee which fix the weak link of government system.
This is just one example, india got so many such cases!
