However, non-erring vehicles or individual boarding the non-transport passenger vehicle should not by unduly harassed, it said.

"Central and state departments, autonomous bodies, individuals can hire and use only motor cabs, maxi cabs, and omni buses which are registered under the transport category. These transport category vehicles can be identified from their customary yellow colour number plates with black colour registration number," it added.
