This is to inform you that i was coming from City Center, Banjara Hill at 11 PM, we hired 2 autos (Reg. No AP 12V 5884 and AP 13X 4838 respectively) till Alwyn Chowrasta (Miyapur), After travelling for a couple of kilometers we observed that the autorikshaw's meter was tampered.
When we asked for the reason, driver said meter is going fast because of the vehicle being driven fast.

Normally while going from Alwyn Chowrasta (Miyapur) to Our Place near city center which was approx half a km away from City Center we paid Rs.130.00 when meter reading was 122.68 at OUR PLACE (name of a resturant).How ever while coming back as mentioned above, the 2 autos which we hired charged us Rs.250 each. ( Total Rs500).

Hope u would take appropriate action and do justice for the malpractices.

Thanking You,
Deepak.

Auto RickShaws-Pune — Overcharging/Misbehaving by autodrivers

We always have to travel by auto rickshaws in Pune as we don't have our own conveyance due to the fact that we are not from Pune. Auto Rickshaw drivers in Pune take advantage of this thing and charge us a lot more than the meter rate. We argue with them to go as meter says but since they know that we don't have any other choice so they demand a fixed amount that is generally much higher than what comes up if we go by meter. They are very troublesome. Sometimes they even use abusive language. Every outsider in Pune faces this problem because generally they don't have their own conveyance. They have no other choice. So these auto rickshaw drivers must be taught a lesson so that they can't charge higher than the meter rate to anyone.

THESE ARE THE AUTO NUMBERS WHO ALWAYS REFUSE TO TAKE PASNGERS TO NEARBY PLACE AND IF WE INSISTS THEY OVERCHARGE AND NEVER GO ON THERE METER

Auto Rickshaw — Meter 20% higher than what it is supposed to be.

I have been facing auto rickshaw's having really freaking high meters for quite some time now. It is just extremely stressful to keep arguing with these auto rickshaw fellows.

When I tell them let us settle this in the police station; they say "FINE" and after some time they just ask you to get off you are returned back the appropriate change.

But there should be an end to this.

Today morning 7th August 09 I travelled with a friend from Juhu to Santacruz (Arya Samaj) on linking road. The daily fare is Rs.50/- the meter showed Rs.62/- to be paid. Now that is a 20% high meter.

Auto Rickshaw No. MH 02 UA 3980

My friend got scared because of the heated argument I had but I really wanted to take the snob to the police station and get his meter right.

I need help and million others too; who face this problem on a daily basis. I need a voice to "Voice Out" this and get Bombay a better place to live in.

It is saddening to say that Bombay is also another place where people get cheated very easily.
And residents of Delhi think that it is only the Delhi's autowallas who are crooks.

Pune Auto Rickshaw — Over charging

This complaint is on Auto Rickshaws having Registration No. MH-12 AQ-4025, Driver's Name is Anil who has over charged me on 14 Oct 09. On questioning, he started queralling and fight.
The auto rickshaw bearing no KA 05 B 1154 has a tampered meter. The guy charged me 57 rupees from Mahalakshmi Layout to Sanjaynagar, where as I have travelled the same distance on many occasions and found the meter to be only 46 rupees.

This is big time fraud. I request the concerned officials to kindly look into such incidents.

Sir,

This is to inform you that Autorikshaw number AP13X1971, is running with tampered meter which is showing almost double the cost. I had travelled in the above mentioned autorickshaw on 28th August evening 8.30 pm from Balanagar to Neredmet X roads. The distance is only 10 kms which costs Rs.72/-. but the above mentioned autorickshaw has shown the distance as 20 kms and the amount was Rs.140/- which is double the cost. PLEASE TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION AGAINST THE AUTO DRIVER else the public travelling will be cheated. Also please publish an article in the leading newspaper regarding auto rickshaw complaints as there are several auto drivers in Hyderabad running tampered meters.

Dear Sirs,

I wish to lodge a complaint about faulty meter in auto rickshaw bearing no.MH03 M-4781.
The driver charges exhorbitant fare as a result of this tampered meter.

Kindly look into this issue.
The auto rickshaw no MH 02 UA 3971 meter was tampered.I traveled from kandivali E to kandivali -W
at 9.30 am and found charged more on reaching my destination.Please take proper measure.
The meter of the auto rickshaw MH03M 9782 is tampered. Everyday I travel from my house to Vikhroli Station and the meter reading comes between 1.2 or 1.3, but this rickshaw had meter reading 1.7. When I confronted he argued and said go and complain wherever you want. I wish I had so much time to take him to a police station immediately.
On 6th January 2011, I took an auto rickshaw at 9.45 a.m. auto rickshaw number is MH 03 AK 3177 from Malad East to Andheri West. The meter was completely tampered and when i told the auto rickshaw driver, he completely denied regarding the tampered meter. He spoke very loudly and in an abusive language. When i told him let's go and check your meter, he said he doesn't have time for it.

I need to know what kind of action would be taken after writing about this complaint.

Auto rickshaw number: MH 03 AK 3177
Dear Sir/Madam,
I am Amit Malde a resident of A-10, Mahavir Jyot, Opp. Odeon Shopping Centre, Vallabh Baug Lane, Ghatkopar (East), Mumbai. This is complain against the Auto Rickshaw Driver for tampering the meter and charging in excess. Auto Rickshaw no. is MH 03 R 500. I board on the Rickshaw from Nirmal Nagar, Near D-mart, Mulund (west) for journey to Rajawadi, Ghatkopar (east) at 10.57 pm on 5/1/11 (wednesday). On reaching the destination at 11.25 pm, when I ask the Rickshaw driver, he said Rs.157 and I was shocked, because I came by highway and that too at night when there was not much traffic on the road (it should have hardly cost me somewhere around Rs.80). So I told him this is not fair and tell me how much I should pay and after some arguement we decided to go to nearest police station and after reaching there charges were around Rs.180 according to his meter reading. And hence police officer asked me to pay him Rs.125 and solve the matter. When I told police office that his meter is tampered, he told me to go to Grahak Panchayat and get the issue resolved. It being so late in night, I paid Rs.125, but I want the Auto Rickshaw driver to be punished severely. As he was shameless and was not even scared when we went to Police station. I dont want anyone else to be cheated in the same way as he cheated me. So please look into the matter at the earliest.
Sir,

Kindly take an action for tampering the meter in Auto rickshaw and demading for extra money.

I often take a auto rickshaw to go from Veer Savarkar Garden, Borivali to Behraum Baag, Jogeshwari. The meter reading near Toyota showroom, Malad is around 38-39. Auto rickshaw number MH 02 UA 3819, was well above that. When I asked him about it, he refused to accept it and claimed the meter was all right.

There needs be some way to tackle this problem. I have submitted a similar complaint earlier in this forum.
Hi,

We happened to travel from Powai to Vikhroli station (via Kailash) in a auto rickshaw (MH 03 V 4228).

Generally its cost anywhere between Rs 32-35. But this chap charged us Rs 40 as the meter was quite fast compared to a normal meter.

Kindly look into this.
The rickshaw with the following no: MH 12 AQ 2383 has a tampered meter with arrogant driver in Kothrud area had a distress with him and found that he charged me more rather his meter was just running too fast for my regular travel destination.
The auto rickshaw no SA1868 meter was tampered. I traveled from Veera Desai to Waloka at 9.00 am and found charged more on reaching my destination. Please take proper measure.
Yesterday, 23rd May I took an auto from Mulund to Chembur which I do every day, the fare for which comes to approx Rs. 125/-. As I neared Chembur I had a look at the meter which already read 130 so I told the driver that his meter was running way to fast and that I would send in a complaint about him. Thereafter, I noticed that the meter did not register any further and it was stuck at 130 till I reached home. I brought this to his notice, he just shrugged and said you pay me whatever you pay everyday. It is obvious that these crooks have a switch or some device on the dashboard by which they can manipulate the meter. I did not get off near my home as I was afraid that once I complained he may come after me. Why do we honest citizens have to put up with these rogues on a daily basis. Overcharging by auto drivers has happened to me often. However, I have 2 auto numbers where I was overcharged.

On 23rd May : Auto No. MH-03-AK-856
On 20th Mary : Auto No. MH 03 AA 7608

I request the concerned organisation to take strict action against the above 2 drivers.
