The Transport department of the Maharashtra government has sought online feedback and suggestions from citizens to decide on revision of rates and fares of auto rickshaws and taxis plying here. The department has uploaded the Survey-Feedback form at https://transport.maharashtra.gov.in/1229/Survey-Feedback-Form in three languages Hindi, English and Marathi on its portal and requested citizens to give their valuable feedback till May 15.

The citizens’ feedback will be studied by a four-member committee headed by B C Khatua, which has been formed by the state government to devise the new fare hike formula and suggest improvements in services of autos and taxis.

“We want to come out with a full and final preparation regarding devising the formula to fix the rate and fair for autos and taxis by the end of June this year. Therefore, we appeal the citizens to give their valuable feedback and suggestions in this regard which will be very useful to us,” Khatua told reporters here yesterday.

    No never.it is not advisable to revise auto/taxi fare every year. 99 of autos and taxis run on CNG which is cheaper fuel .After analysing statistical study of CNG with PETROL there is 100 profit in using CNG fuel.Think also of a common middle class people who are using autos or taxis forcefully for daily office job as bus service is very poor.another reason for no hike is that REFUSAL and METER TAMPERING is still going on in large quan es then why should govt think of such dishonest rickshawalas who are trying to loot mumbaikars common man.please teach this rude people to stop this all ruckus things.This is a sincere request from me on behalf of 1 crore mumbaikars.

      There is no need for increasing fare for Auto & Taxi. The said fare is ok. There are lots of problems with them, Misbehave with p engers, denied for ride, safety of women p engers, har ment for exchange.
