Found these three-wheeled jugaads teeming in the rural areas of WB the last time I was there (March 2012), especially plying on the highways early in the morning (pic taken at 6:21 AM). A close-up view of the undercarriage of one of these, shows a very interesting braking arrangement.

Thanks Doctor Sahab. Here is another variant commonly found in Birbhum district. This picture was taken by me while I was at Shantiniketan (Bolpur) last winter. Please see that the front wheel is distinctly different from that of the rear.

These versions are also known as "ganesh" in Meerut/Muzaffarnagar and Saharanpur district in UP.

I have travelled in both the Ganesh and the Jugaad many times visiting my village and neighbouring places.

The Ganesh is a much more comfortable ride than a jugaad as it has bit more engineering gone into it. The engine sits on the front wheel making it a one wheel drive vehicle. The biggest drawback was it was unable to handle turns with a slightest hint of slush. In the recent years the jugaad has been more popular as it can handle bad roads and can felly more people.

The jugaad is non existent in the eyes of the law. It is marked as a "daggamar" vehicle.

A few more Chakdahs from Gujarat - Kutch area and Sasan Gir region. Some of these vehicles are quite decorated while others are more utilitarian in their looks.

An auto rickshaw version of the chakda from Kutch region in Gujarat. The body has been nicely made and properly painted in the official taxi livery.

Similar to India they also use it for moving stuff (and sometimes people) within the city.

Is this the end of the road for the jugaad?

"As the Jugaad is covered in the definition of the motor vehicle under Section 2(28) of the Act, the statutory authorities cannot escape from their duty to enforce the law and restrain their plying.

"The statutory authorities must ensure that Jugaad can be plied only after meeting the requirements of the Act. The same has become a menace to public safety as they are causing a very large number of accidents. Jugaads are not insured and its owners generally do not have the financial capacity to pay compensation to persons who suffer disablement and to dependents of those, who lose life," the bench said.

The jugaad passengers are those at the bottom of the pyramid, who may not possess even a cycle. The jugaad offers the only means of getting from point A to point B, and those points will be from home to work and back. Not getting on to a jugaad could mean having to forsake a day’s wage. As for the risk of injury or death, that is to be left to fate. The Supreme Court order will leave them stranded.
.....
The continued existence of jugaads is nothing but a damning indictment of the state of rural public transport. According to the report of the Working Group on Road Transport for the Twelfth Plan, less than one-third of the nearly six lakh inhabited villages are serviced by the State Road Transport Undertakings. Is there any discussion at all on this, with the kind of urgency and seriousness that urban public transport gets (it is another matter that despite all the attention, urban public transport is also in a mess)?
.....
Maybe, because of the sanctity of the Supreme Court order, state governments will take jugaad vehicles off rural roads. But if they don’t take steps simultaneously to address the unmet demand for rural public transport, things will be back to square one. The Indian jugaad spirit will only replace the current lot of vehicles with some other means of transport, which could be more unsafe. They will continue till another Supreme Court order some years down the line.

So long as there is demand to ensure that earnings more than make up for the bribes paid, such services – whether Gramin Sevas in Delhi or jugaads in the rural areas – will continue.
That is the bitter truth.

Aren't these called the Phatphatis in Delhi ?

I used to look at them in awe when we moved to Hissar from down south and even its name sounded too alien to me.


And I have a memory connected to this vehicle during my first ride. After a tired day of shopping, we got into this to get back home and I fell asleep with my newly brought truck toy in my hand only to realize that I dropped in the way during my slumber. :(
