Delhi Autos should travel by the meter

This petition had 719 supporters

Hardly any auto plies on the streets of Delhi going without the excuse that their meter is dysfunctional.

Harassment by the auto drivers have been on a steep rise since the time I moved to Delhi. They just refuse to travel on meter and insist on being paid 30%-50% more the estimated fare and sometimes demand double the amount. I am tired of persuading the drivers to travel by the meter. Their reluctance and my urgency to travel makes me succumb to their harassment and shell out my hard earned money every single day of my living in the city.

I know many of my friends face the same issue everyday. It is now a lunch/dinner table conversation.

I urge the Transport Minister of Delhi to look into this matter. I would request you to summon the leaders of the unions and convey the issues that we the passengers face. Our need to travel should not be treated as a vulnerability to harass or extort money from us. There is also a need to understand why do the auto rickshaws refuse to travel by the meter and resort to such means.  Whatever be the issue, this cannot be overlooked since it is affecting a large number people every day of their life in the city of Delhi- be it the ones who travel or the ones who drive.
