Auto rickshaw mafia in nexus with local police have forced to discontinue the G-Auto Services an initiative of Nirmal Foundation from the SVP airport, Ahmedabad . The services have forced to evict from August 7, 2013.The service has been popular among the travelling domestic & international passengers for its - Reliability, Safety and Reasonable auto rickshaw tariff.
G-Auto has been an ambassador of Ahmedabad city with its suave and honest auto drivers who ensures safety & comfort to passengers at every cost. They have established a service benchmark and constantly working to improve their services.
G-Auto has been the first of its kind service to implement metered auto rickshaw service at Ahmedeabad airport. It has been able to run the service successfully for more than three years with utmost customer satisfaction. It was a great relief to the travelers from the touts and unorganized auto rickshaws drivers. The local auto rickshaw drivers and touts have been a great nuisance to passengers, known for haggling the passengers and many a times charging exorbitant amount. who use to harass airport passengers and many a time charged wrongly.
Nirmal Foundation is a public charitable trust registered under Mumbai trust act of Govt. of India. Mr. Nirmal Kumar, an IIM Ahmedabad graduate is the founder and managing trustee of Nirmal Foundation. Nirmal Foundation is organizing auto rickshaw drivers under a social umbrella brand called ‘G-Auto’. G-Auto consists of a group of 10,000 auto rickshaws in Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Rajkot and Surat.
‘G-Auto’ concept has brought revolution in para-transit system in term of safety & comfort to passengers, income & job satisfaction to ‘G-Pilots’. The service has played an important role in dignifying the job of autorickshwala in the city.
The G-Auto model has been featured in the national & international media and endorsed by Government of Gujarat & Government of India and has been widely recognized for its exemplary services. G-Auto also provide insurance facilities and other social benefits to auto rickshaw drivers.
We strongly condemn the act of harassment to G-Auto drivers and stopping its service by cartel of auto mafia and local police at Ahmedabad airport. We need you support in condemning this act which affects public in general and reinstating G-Auto services once again at the Airport.
