Dear Ma’am/Sirs,

Day by day auto-rickshaw drivers is getting very unfair. Common people have to face this issue in daily life.
Auto-rickshaw drivers always ask for unfair fare,specially in night.
17-feb i took auto form S.G. Highway to Shivranjani at 11.05 pm. When i got down Shivranjani, Auto-rickshaw driver ask for 62 rupees. I got shocked how he can charge 62 rupees. He said one and half fair due in night. I asked him for rate card and checked the points and the fare was 42 rupees only. He said "Sorry mujhe yahi dhyan me tha". Today again on 18th morning i ask Auto-rickshaw driver ashivranjanini to go seema hall. he said i will charge 30 rupees. Daily i give 21 to 22 rupees as per rate card.
Not only he said, the other one also asked me same fair.
They were doing two things worng
1. asking for wrong fare
2. parked their auto on no-parking place.

Auto-rickshaw number
GJ-1 CU 3068
GJ-1 CZ 6638

This is not first time it happened.
When i took auto from seema hall to kankaria, he took 200 rupees as fare where actual fare is 80 to 90 rupees.

These point meter should be removed.

I am writing because we common people get addicted easily and do not complain because we know if we file a complaint, our govt system do not do anything.

Unfair Fare - Auto Rickshaw Operators

Need to bring your attention to most Auto Rickshaw drivers who do not run by meters and demand high fares. In whitefield area of bangalore have not come across a single auto who runs on meter. In case of rain or inside roads where other public transport like buses not available and outside shopping malls like Forum Value Mall, Hypercity, Big Bazaar its very difficult to get Auto even though there are lined up there in huge numbers. If anyone agrees others will pull him off. demand very high fairs and refuse to run on meters. Why do they then have meters on their Autos?

Unauthorized Charges - Auto rickshaw fares

I have noticed over the last 3 months that most of the auto rickshaw drivers in Mumbai have started charging fares almost 20-25% in excess of the normal fares by tinkering with the meters.

This is done post their fare hike from 9 rs to 11 rs. Is there any way that this problem can be addressed.

Auto Rickshaws demanding unfair fares - Bangalore Auto rickshaws


Tariff meters in an autorikshaw in Bangalore has become a mere black box. None of the autorikshaws during any part of the day are willing to take a passenger on meter tariff.

Every area has a taxi stand and fixed rates decided by the drivers which they demand from the passengers. Tariff meters are barely used even in a newly purchased auto.

Is this a right practice?
