Bangalore: Auto Fare up by Rs 3 from Monday

Bangalore: Auto Fare up by Rs 3 from Monday

Bangalore, Mar 10 (DHNS):
The auto rickshaw drivers have had their way yet again with the State government on Friday agreeing for a hike in the auto meter fare, following a series of meetings held with the auto unions pushing for an increase in fares for over two months now.

The revised rates will come into effect from Monday morning and commuters will now have to pay Rs 20 for the first 1.8-km as opposed to Rs 17 for two km presently. Subsequently, every km will cost the commuters Rs 11 compared to Rs 9 per km presently.

The Auto Rickshaw Drivers’ Union (ARDU) has been demanding an increase in the fares since November last year. But the recent hike in the LPG prices by over Rs 3 is the causal effect for the hike as the union also received support from other unions and drivers. However, the fare may come down in case the LPG prices fall again.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, ARDU president Meenakshi­sundaram said: “We had proposed that the minimum fare (for first  two km) be Rs 24 and that the subsequent km be priced at Rs 12. But we have compromised for this rate.”

They had also asked the government to fix 33 paise as waiting charge per minute. There was no confirmation on whether the government had agreed to this particular demand.

Besides, the unions have also agreed on reduction of fare in case of the LPG prices falling again. “The government proposed this and we had no reservations,” he said.

Auto fare in bangalore is very costly nowadays. Auto drivers they used to take extra amount for luggage. Do they add seprate or extra fuel for luggage

Auto prices going high , petrol charges are going high, do this govt think about the common people while rising the prices. better govt is required which thinks about people not about making money. Costs are always high but we are not paid very high in our companies

We have alternative options which can solve our problems, though we don’t have oil wells.
But we waste our time in fighting, arguing and pointing at each other, instead of accepting and implementing the available alternate opportunities.

I fully agree with Mr.Rudolf Rodriguez, Loretto/Mumbai/Mangalore.No doubt fare increase is already in force even before the official announcement.When the minimum fare was Rs.17/=Autodrivers were forcibly collecting Rs.20/-even for a short distance.Can we question or ask them why you have charged so much or has anybody questioned them?We have to oblige them without any other option or fight with those goons.No sympathy,courtesy at all,behaving inhumanely.

Their attitude is very rough.Under the circumstance poorer will remain poorer only,richer becomes richer.Only middle class people are the real sufferers.ach and every segment got their own unions to fight for reddressal but for the common man no unions.He has to fight alone.This is called survival of the fittest,struggle for existaence.God please help the helpless middle class/common man.

The fare hike is in Bangalore not Mangalore. I agree with Jossey Saldanha. Not only is there a increase in fare but the distance for the minimum fare is reduced from 2 km to 1.8 km. Isnt this ridiculous?
Nagesh maamu, your concern towards auto drivers is appreciated. May be you have never been looted by them in Bangalore yet.

This is radiculous that the min. fare has been hiked to 20, it is really too much for a small city like Mangalore. Now only the rich can afford going by auto. Moreover, most of the meters are rigged and one has to pay at least 25% more. Also, the drivers act like goons. They quote fares of 1.5x or even 2x for certain destinations which are not suitable for them, such is the state of affairs in our Mangluru!!

HEY, Jossey Saldanha, Mangalore/Mapusa/ Mumbai,

RIDICULOUS LOGIC. YOUR ITALIAN LED CONGRESS LOOSES ELECTION & RESPONSIBILITY WILL BE ON CHAMCHAS LIKE DIGGY ETCC...

WHEN ITALIAN LED CONGRESS EVEN WINS GRAM PANCHAYATH ELECTION FULL CREDIT GOES TO A ITALIAN MATHA & YUAVRAJA WITH FANTASTIC SLOGANS .

THIS IS THE REALITY OF ITALIAN LED CONGRESS.

YOUR ITALIAN LED UPA IS HIKING PRICES OF PETROLEUM PRODUCTS REGULARLY . IS THIS IS OT A RIDICULOUS?

POOR AUTO DRIVERS STRUGGLING FOR THEIR LIVELY HOOD AFTER PAYING HEFTY PRICES FOR THE FUEL.

HIKE IN AUTO FARE IS JUSTIFIED .

DO NOT SUPPORT BLINDLY TO ITALIAN & CO. FOR THE SAKE OF RELIGION.

The growing population, increasing demand, congested roads, traffic jams, health hazardous air pollution and peace disturbing sound pollution are the major problems in the land transport.

In order to have amazing benefits and incredible solutions, a revolutionary change in our transport sector is a priority. It also will help us to keep face with the sky high communication sector, which has been revolutionized in the last of couple of decades.

If we can accept and implement a slight style change (in land transport sector) in couple of century old, evolutionary mode, we can certainly achieve good success with appropriate solutions. This will help us to have cheaper vehicles with high capacity, cheaper fuel, with reduced pollution by making them environmental friendly.

Most of the Auto's do not have Fare meter and they are charging 30-40rs for 2km in manglore area....Such people should be punished ,otherwise it will be not corrected.

Ridiculous logic!!!! Price of LGP goes up by Rs.3 so minimum fare goes up by Rs.3.
If LGP price goes down by Rs.5 will minimum fare also come down by Rs.5?
