let me mention at the onset that i am not too fond of travelling.... and one of the reasons for this is that i hate to haggle and at the same time i hate being cheated...... so when an auto rickshaw driver demanded 1.5 times the fare as quoted by his tampered meter at 11:30 this morning i flew into a rage. an ugly fight followed ... at the end of which i budged and paid an exorbitant amount for a short distance travelled in Bangalore.... i was desperate to lodge a complaint against the driver... so i googled and found the following system for registering complaints against auto-drivers in Bangalore.
The system was given in this post. since many of us are hassled by these auto-drivers on a regular basis so i thought that the above info might be useful to many of you!
will google some more and try to share all the info i can gather along these lines soon.....
The system to register complaints against auto-drivers in Chennai: (found here)
In response to the following question: What are the mechanisms provided to the public to report contract carriage auto rickshaws NOT plying according to the government prescribed rates of fare?
The Public Information Officer, Transport Department, Chennai said that: Phone numbers of the Regional Transport Officers, where permits are issued to an Auto rickshaw are painted in visible portion on the back side of Auto rickshaw so that public can make complaint of erring auto rickshaws immediately.
