A statement from the state government, which said the order takes effect from Tuesday August 11, explained that it is to curb traffic congestion in the state capital.

“It has become noticeable that the movement of this category of vehicles within the capital has resulted in heavy traffic holdups, disruption in traffic flow and untold hardship on commuters,” the statement said.
