Today we are discussing about the auto-taxi rate hike. The recommendations suggest to increase the minimum charge of autorickshaw from Rs 20 to Rs 30 and taxi from Rs 150 to Rs 200. It is natural for passengers to feel sad. The rates were last increased in 2014 April when the diesel rate was Rs 58. At that time it was enough to make living but the conditions have changed over last four years. Now they are running from post to pillar to make living. Nammalariyanam.
