Autorickshaw — Charging of excess fare through tampered meter

This is a problem which I face daily i.e either the auto drivers will charge excess fair or otherwise they will not be ready to take me to the destination. There are are also instances where there are tampering of auto meter. Today, I faced a situation where there is tampering of meter resulting in excess rate. Today morning, I was coming from Kaggadasapura to CMH for which meter charge is only around Rs. 35 but in the meter it was Rs. 54. I refused to pay the excess amount and there ocuured argument. I demanded the driver to go to Indiranagar Police Station for which I got abusive reply which I do not wat mention here. The driver dragged me out of the auto and I was assulted. Anyway I gave him only Rs. 35/-. I have already given a complaint to the Indiranagar Police Station.
During the struggle I could not notice the auto number. However other details I could write from the display card inside the auto and the same is already given to the Police.

I request that this is to be taken very seriously as this is a daily problem everybody faacing from the autodrivers.

Excess Auto Fare — Excess Auto Fare

Hello Sir,

Mu self working in Metro Rail Project at Wadala and since last 1.5 year i am traveling by the same route means after Sion station i moved from footpath till that Bus stop near by Aparna Restaurant and after that I used to take Auto to Wadala RTO Gate. THe fair for such distance usually take 26 to 30 Rs. (including heavy traffic) But today morning when I took Auto from there since Priyadarshani Bus Stop the Auto Meter was showing only 15 Rs. but at the time whe we reached at RTO gate it was become 40 Rs. and when I object that Auto driver misbehaved me and told me that I am free to complain anywhere. he told me that I have to note dowm his Auto no. Means he has no guilt no same nothing. I have noted his no. that is MH03R - 8311. Sir I am requesting you to take suitable action not because he has taken excess fare from me but because he has no fear of law .
This is for your necessary action.



auto — Excess Fare Charged by Auto


I am dropping this complaint after being terribly disgusted by an auto driver over excess fare. Usually when I come to office the meter reads somewhere around 4.8 to 5.1, for which I am required to pay Rs 36 - 40. Whereas today (09/11/09) it went up to 7.5, not to mention the meter was already tapered and the driver took a Rs 50 note and never returned the change inspite to telling him to do so a lot of times. The Auto registration no is MH12 R3482. Any action on this will be highly appreciated.

Rickshaw — excess fare

Hello, today i.e. 29/9/2011, we are travelling from santacruz (E) station to Amar Brass (MahaAuto). Usually @ morning time (between 8 am - 8.30 am) meter runs upto 17-18, but today rikshwa's meter runs 27 and driver charge us Rs. 32. When we ask him abt this fast meter, rikshwa driver starting giving us abusing word. This is height of crafiness & open looting.

Rikshwa No. MH 02 VA 6598

Pls. if possible check his meter and banned his permit.

rickshaw/ Auto — tampered rickshaw/ auto meter


I travel every day from Goregaon east to Santacruz East (Kalina). I used to pay anything between Rs.120 - 150 one way, irrespective of traffic. After the strike when few autos had the corrected their meters and I paid 80 - 90.

However, there are a few rickshaw meters are still not corrected. Besides these auto drivers have the audacity to ask to customers to get off and find another auto. The auto numbers are given below and request the concerned authorities to please take action them;


I am very happy with the initiative the Traffic Police has taken. Please continue this good work and take action before Mumbai becomes another Delhi!

Thank you.
Mansi Desai.
