Mumbai, Nov 5 (PTI) Maharashtra minister Anil Deshmukh on Thursday urged officials of Regional Transport Office (RTO) to be courteous to women autorickshaw drivers who are trying to restore finances of their families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

'RTO officials should treat with courtesy women autorickshaw drivers who have hit the roads to restore financial order of their families affected by COVID-19, and bank managers should do so while recovering pending instalments,' the minister tweeted in Marathi.
