Auto-rickshaws drivers in Gurgaon who have not yet installed fare meters in their vehicles have been given a week to do so, with Additional Deputy Commissioner cum Secretary of the Regional Transport Authority, Prashant Panwar, issuing directions to this effect Monday.
“After that, strict action will be taken as per provisions of the Motor Vehicles Rules, 1988 and 1989, against drivers who fail to comply,” said Panwar.
For the first kilometre, the fare has been set at Rs 12 per km, with the fare falling to Rs 8 for every km thereafter. Between 11 pm and 5 am, 25% extra fare can be charged, said officials.
