The new auto fare chart

The Department of Legal Metrology has come out with the fare conversion chart. The chart indicates the actual fare to be paid by passengers for the amount shown in the meter.

There was a lot of confusion when the revised autorickshaw fares came into effect, yesterday as only a few drivers were carrying the new price chart supplied by the Department of Legal Metrology. The transport department has given the drivers a month to recalibrate the meters; commuters had a difficult time trying to calculate how much they have to pay extra.

The delay in distribution of authorized charts of the revised fares by the Regional Transport Authority (RTO) is causing the confusion. The fares have been revised — Rs. 17 as minimum fare and Rs. 8.5 for every kilometre — and the revised fare chart will only be distributed on Monday.

After the revision Fare per kilometre: Rs 9 Minimum fare for first 2 km: Rs 17 Waiting Charge: First 5 minutes: Free For every 15 minutes: Rs 1 Luggage Charge: Up to 20 kg: Free For every 20 kg: Rs 2 Maximum luggage allowed: 50 kg Fare at night: Between 10 pm and 5 am, one-and-a-half times the regular meter fare.

Each RTO will be dispatching around 2,000 copies to autorickshaw associations; also the charts will be displayed on the notice boards. M.K. Aiyappa, Deputy Commissioner of Bangalore Urban and Regional Transport Authority, said he had directed the RTOs to frame the conversion charts a week ago. “The Transport Department and the RTOs should have kept them ready. It is also the responsibility of the auto drivers to collect them from the RTO,” he said, and added that the new fares have been widely publicized and most people know about it.

However the Department of Legal Metrology has come out with a fare chart. The chart indicates the actual fare to be paid by passengers for the amount shown in the meter.
