A few days ago, the BEST hiked their fares which was a setback to the commuters and then, a rise in diesel prices just added to the pressure. However, Mumbaikars will now have to shell out more money for an auto/taxi ride.

We want a hike of ₹2 in auto-rickshaw fare and ₹3 in taxi fares. We had submitted our proposal to the transport department who have given us a green signal for the hike,” A L Quadros, Taxi Union Leader.

If the fares go up, the minimum auto fare could rise from ₹18 to ₹20 while Kaali Peeli taxi fare could go up from ₹22 to ₹24. However, the final call will be that of Mumbai Metropolitan Region Transport Authority (MMRTA). Meanwhile, Mumbai Grahak Panchayat — which represents the commuters — has demanded that the fare hike should be based on the Khatua committee report’s recommendations.
