[Resolved]  Auto rickshaw meter (Mumbai auto rickshaw) — Tampered meter-Overcharging commuters daily

Dear Sir/Madam,
This is Abhijit Chakravarty a resident of GE Links, Ram Mandir Road, Goregaon West, Mumbai. This is to lodge a complaint and bring to your notice that the Auto-Rickshaws standing on Ram Mandir road outside GE Links Goregaon have Tampered meters through which they overcharge the commuters daily.
Auto-Rickshaw number MH-02 X 4980 in particular has been charging high fare through tamoered meter.
Example: The fare for travelling from Ram Mandir road Goregaon West to Andheri station West is Rs.26/- with the meter indicating 2.70 where as if one travels by Auto rickshaw MH-02 X 4980 it will come to Rs.32/- with the meter indicating 3.30, Kindly look into the matter of growing commuters problems in this regard on Ram Mandir Road, Goregaon West, Mumbai-104. These Auto rickshaw goons have a strong lobby who are not scared of the authorities, since nothing yet has been done by RTO in this area and thus make fun of the commuters as well as the RTO and traffic police.
Kindly Take urgent action. Please

mumbai auto rickshaws — Fare Meters Fast

90% of the auti rickshaws in Mumbai have the meters fast. For every Rs 30 that appears in the meter as much as Rs 5-6 is manipulated.
I sincerely request RTO to keep a check on this and penalise Autowallas who tamper their meters.

Rickshaw in mumbai — Tampered Rickshaw meter

On 27th July, while travelling from Andheri (E) to Chembur, the meter of the rickshaw no. MH-02 Z 2493 was tampered. The normal fare regulalry comes between 70 to 75 rupees. However, on 27th the meter read a fare of rupees 100. I tried to argue with the driver and would have only paid him the appropriate fare, but unfortunately didnt have the change.

I would request you to please adhere to this complain and take the necessary action.

Auto Rickshaw overcharging — Over charging/ meter fast

I hired an auto rickshaw on 24th October 2009 at 6.15 pm from Hingwala Lane, Ghatkopar, Mumbai - 77 to Kurla Terminus Pipeline road near jain derasar. the usual fare as per reading is Rs.15.00. the meter in this auto showed Rs.19.00 and the fare he demanded was Rs.20/-. On asking about the rise in fare he disagreed to it and demanded the full money. he charged me Rs.19.00 for the same then. The Re.1/- he reduced obviously means he was aware of the rigging of the meter. Please do the needful so as to stop him from looting innocent customer. the auto rickshaw no. was MH-03-Q-882.
Complaints should be made easy.
Weshould have complaint centers at various places.
I find almost all the auto rickshaws have fast meters.
Waiting is always fast.
The meters run faster if there is low tyre pressure of if the tyre is bald.
The authorities must look into this matter very seriously and stop corruption.

Dear Sir / Madam,
This is Prasun Kumar residing in Hiranandani Estate, Patlipada, Thane (W). I had to go from Boriwali Station to Patlipada tonight 26th April 2010at about 0330 hrs. The driver of auto rickshaw MH O2 Z 2324 convinced me that only way to go Patlipada is to go first Mulund CheckNaka and then from Mulund CheckNaka to Patlipada.
From Boriwali to Mulund CheckNaka the meter reading was 2360, for which he charged me Rs 416/- including night charge. It seems his meter was fast and also the card was fake.
You are requested to let me know whether he has charged me correctly, if not what action has been taken against him.
You can contact me on my E-mail id "[protected]".

Thanks & Brgds,
Prasun Kumar.
mh03 ak1214 runs 1.5 times faster; the guys was rude too; cots me 30rs for a normal 20-22rs ride
I live in pump house andheri east and we residents have a tough time finding an auto from staion to ply us back home, In the event we get one, their meters are tampered. On compaining to cops they send us from one place to another to lodge complaints. and increase our harrasment. How do we control this?.
Now that the auto fare has increased as per the autodrivers demands, we as commuters demand a fair policy fare to ensure we dont end up paying extra money each time we take a auto ride.
I daily travel through Auto from Powai - Kensignston TCS office - Mumbai to THakur Complex-Kandivali East. Always I have an issue with Auto person. THere have very fast meter and on discussing with them they start abusing, one of the auto person rikshaw number is MH03 R 2790. Request you to take strick action against it.
Normal fare from Thakur Complex to Powai-Kensingston is 115 Rs and ther charge you 145 to 140 Rs. This is really a big cheating auto people are doing. All the auto people stands outside TCS Office in Powai have wrong meters.
I travel from Borivali west to pathanwadi malad east and back everyday. I want to complain about the following autodivers who refused to commute between this distance :
- MH02A5305 - Borivali to Malad
- MH02Q9775 - Malad to Borivali
- MH02U5445 - Malad to Borivali
- MH02UA8541 - Borivali to Malad
- MH02SA8779 - Borivali to Malad

On telling that we will complaint, they nicely said go and complaint ..we will see who can do anything. They have just made a mockery of the whole complaint system.
Auto rickshaw number MH-03-R-5839 standing at Saibaba Temple, Jagdusha Nagar, Ghatkopar-west, Mumbai-400086 has tempered his Auto meter by 40%.
I travel from Ghatkopar to Goregaon & meter reads somewhere 10.5 to 11.0, but when I came with his auto, without any traffic, the meter read 14.5 & he charged me 180.00

on requesting him that he is charging unfair amount, he was extremely rude & told his meter reads, what I have to pay.

We should do something to have this auto rickshaw man some lesson.
