The process of registration of names and other details and allotment of number was in the final stages, he added.

There were more than 3,000 autorickshaws in the city but lacked proper system. Complaints of charging extra and refusing to come to the place demanded by passengers have increased in the recent days.

Most of the auto drivers have extended cooperation to the department, which would benefit the passengers.
