Autos demand a hike


Owners of auto rickshaws in Bengaluru have requested the Deputy Commissioner of Bengaluru Urban to hike the auto rickshaw fares, in view of the recent hike in fuel price.

On Tuesday, Deputy Commissioner, Bengaluru Urban, R Vijay Shankar, held a meeting with auto rickshaw owners in his office, where he was urged to hike the auto rickshaw fare. “Due to hike in prices of essential commodities like LPG gas, auto rickshaw vehicles, insurance and spare parts, the maintenance cost of auto rickshaws too have gone up.

Also, the number of people hiring auto rickshaws has come down due to app-based aggregators in the city. Thus, we urge the district administration to hike the fare and take action against illegal hiring of taxis in the city,” the owners asked in a petition they submitted to the DC.
