[Resolved]  Auto Rickshaw — Fare

I travel frequently travel by rickshaw, especially between Dahisar Check Naka and Hiranandani, Powai. I am quite surprised at the various amounts of fare payable after the travel. They usually range from Rs. 120 to 145. However, giving consideration to the traffic condition, I had till date not thought much about the same. Yesterday, on 1st April 2009 (kindly note this is not any April Fool Joke), I took an auto rickshaw (MH 03 Z 403) from Dahisar Check Naka at about 7.45 - 8am to travel to Hiranandani, Powai. The fare surprisingly was Rs. 175. I had to pay the Rs. 175 as there was no way for me to prove that the fare was quite high as even though the traffic encountered was lesser than usual. I fail to understand the reasons for such high degree of variation in the fares. It seems that the meters are rigged. People say that for travelling between Dahisar Check Naka and Hiranandani, Powai the fare should be about Rs. 120. However in my frequent travels, it was only once that the fare was Rs. 125, as most of the times I had to shell out around Rs. 140-150. I request the concerned authorities to kindly take some action in this regard as this not a phenomenon ristricted to travel between Dahisar Check Naka and Hiranandani, Powai, but elsewhere as well. Thanking the concerned authorities in anticipation of early positive actions. Regards, Vikas R. Joshi.

Respected sir/madam,

this is to bring to your notice about the auto rickshaws in hyderabad who inspite of installing digital meters are asking for higher amount of money and disagree to use the meter. I would like to ask the autorities why the digital meter is installed when they are not using it This is sheer corruption on the part of the auto rickshaw drivers and it is really become nuissance for us consumers as we are the ones who are suffering .I would request to take notice and stricter laws be imposed on the auto rickshaw drivers who are failing to to use the meter and are asking for double or even three times more amount of money than the usual fare.After all we cannot spend our hard earned money to fill the houses of auto rickshaw drivers.My suggestion would be that there should be a seperate wing which takes up the complaints and matter of such auto rickshaw drivers so that they dont break laws. Thanking you.

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs Harpreet Kaur.
Auto Rickshaws in Hdyerabad are real nuisance. Looks like nothing can help. They are tampering even the digital meters. Is this an official site? do the concerened authorities really visit this site and take actions? or its just meant to vent our anger? If anyone knows of an official site, please mail me. I have the AUto Number also with me.

Thanks
Aarti
I completely agree.Travelling is auto in Hyderabad has become
night mare these days.

Firslty they refuse to come to place you want to go.
If you are lucky enough after asking 15-20 autos one agrees to come but will charge twice from meter fare.

I had the same experience from Railway station, Banjara Hills, Secunderabad...everywhere.

I sincerely hope concerened authorities do something about it.
Hyderabad badly needs pre paid auto counters everywhere.

auto number AP 10 U 4035, the auto driver asked for Rs.50/- which under normal circumstances costs Rs.28/-; whom to approach to launch the complaint? Very arrogant behaviour! Also was interested in starting a forum to work on the unruly traffic scenario!
Auto Number AP 11 x 6370
Meter Number:30959
I completely agree. They are tampering even the digital meters.
Please check this autodrivers meter.
His kilometer reading is worst...0.3 km distance shows as 1 km
I request someone to take action and suggest that there should be regular check done randomly on the Auto meter
Govt has setup digital meter because the autodrivers where modifiying the old meter setting..but know they know how to modify the digital meters as well.Plz control this and take action against such auto drivers
Auto No : AP11x 3959
Issue :Meter shows 02 times the distance travelled than that of taxi meter.This is even after changes in the fares.Driver not ready to accept that meter is tampered.Fare paid was double than original.

RTA pls check the meter of the said auto
In Hyderabad, Auto number - AP 13x 4040 is having tampered digital meter.
I travel everyday between police line - begumpet railway station. Distance is 2.2 km. In the above said auto, distance came as 3.7kms. Most of the autos in begumpet railway station area have tampered meters or they dont come on meter. they demand double the money. Please take necessary action.
Hmmmm...there is a toll-free number 1074 on which we can register complaints about the auto rickshaws...but the number is not in use currently...i have tried dialing the number several times...but it is of no use...i have a list of auto numbers on which i wanted to post a complaint..how can i?The head of road transport services had announced this toll-free number 1074...but it is of no use...everyday i come across arrogant auto drivers...they demand very high amount..their are very confident that no one will question them regarding the fare..yesterday evening an auto driver was asking 80 rs for dropping me from koti(womens college) to lakdikapul(bus stop)..i was noting down the auto number...the driver was very careless and was shouting at me to note down his number properly and no one is going to do anything ...What the hell!!!i felt like kicking his auto...Several autos..in the same way...i am being habituated to fight with auto drivers daily...atleast one auto driver everyday...

Respected Sir

Respected Sir/Madam,

As you are aware there is quit no of auto rickshaws.Today at 8.30 pm I travelled in one such auto bearing reg.no KA-02-C-2724 from Hosur road (VDO bus stop) to Ulsoor which is hardly 5.5 to 6 kms for whch the fare meter was showing Rs.58, 00 instead Rs.40 or 42.The same morning I travelled in other auto fom ulssor to Hosur road check post almost the same distance for which the fare was Rs.42.50.
I request tour kind self to initiate suitable action against the above mensioned auto owner/driver as per the law.

Thanking you,

I travelled in Hyderabad from Begumpet(Pentaloon) to Somajiguda(Yoshoda hospital). It comes actually 19 rupees but in one auto today it came as 35 rupees. And the auto person was arguing that it is new meter. In new meter only it should come as 19 and in old it should come asd 16 rupees. So this means they are able to manipulate the new digital meter also.
All above comments/concerns are 200% correct & most of the hyderabadi's facing everyday. The auto drivers or owners are pretty intelligent than the Govt. They started tampering any kind of meters (Even Digital meters).

The tampering is happening in terms of distance. The distance travelled will be tampered which makes the passengers to pay more.

Recently there was a complaint number ([protected]) published in one of the news paper to log complaints against the auto frauds within the city. As per the news published, it must be toll-free (should not be charged to the caller) but it is getting billed to the caller. At the same time, the officials receiving these calls are making delay in logging complaints.

Some serious action in this regard would be highly appreciated. Hope this will wipe out the bad remark being tagged to the auto's in hyderabad.

Thank You,

I work in Hitech City. The auto stand guys doesn't have a meter some of them say "I don't have battery to run the meter". They are always asking 1.5 times of the fare for e.g Hitec to Panjagutta Rs 120... I am really pissed off. Can government do anything?? This is a bad remark on hyderabad...
Auto No: MH 02 UA 5490.

Meter reading is too fast. Its reading One and Half times. Means for 100 its showing 150. I have travelled from Dahisar checknaka to Goregaon (Oberai mall). Daily I travel in this route. Meter reading should be 72/- but it was 102/-
When I asked him, he was very rude and was saying " Note my Auto No. and give complaint where ever you want".
Its not about about my 30 Rupees but, the kind of thinking he has " Nobody can reach me ", should be punished.
I am complaining for the first time here and want to know whether any action can be taken from your end.
Rickies in Mumbai need to be booked underthe law for refusing a passenger. Every single day I face aproblem to get a rick form my place (Santacruz East, Vakola) to the station and then back from the station to my place. They behave rude and stubborn.

Is there a law which can be o[censored]se here when these rickies refuse the passenger? If in case, we see an empty rick and if he refuses us, can we take him to the police station? I know that if someone who refuses a passenger when he is under a rickshaw or taxi stand, he can then be threatened with a plice complian, but can we do this to the other rickies as well who refuse to take us?

This problem is gettingworse by each passing day.

Can you pelase help??
Even i have the similar complaints about the auto drivers.
So first i want to know any actions are taken for above complaints. If yes plz do send me the mail to the my mail ID.
To day my experience was horrible, the driver was so rude.

Thanks,
Expecting ur reply.

On the 3rd of March I wanted to go from Commercial Sreet to Lake Side hospital in Bangalore and the fare is normally Rs 14/- which is the minimum fare but this auto guy demanded Rs 30/-. His auto number is KA02 2874. He should be taken to task as he was very very rude and demanded that I get off the rickshaw if I refused to pay the amount. This was around 1.30 in the afternoon. I understand that it is double the fare in the night but this is ridiculous when they are hanging around in broad day light, refusing to go where u want to go and then demanding double the fare.
