Please post the latest 'Govt Authorised' Auto and Taxi Fares in your State, so that people may be aware.

Latest rate in Kerala is given below (15 Mar 2010):

The earlier minimum fare for auto had been Rs.10, which would be retained. But the distance limit for the minimum charge had been reduced from 1.6 km to 1.25 km. And further Rs 6 should be given for every single kilometer.

In the case of taxi, the minimum fare of Rs 50 would be retained. For this particular fare up to 3km can be traveled. And for each kilometer further Rs 7.50 would be the rate.

Default Auto fares - Pune

Pune Auto Fare (as on July 2010):

Auro-Rickshaws are plentiful and are best option for most trips around town. Official rates are Rs. 11.00 for the first kilometer. Before getting in, ensure that the driver will use not only his meter but also the official tariff conversion cards. After dark you'll probably have to negotiate a fare.
Note : Pay 50 % Extra charge Between 12 Midnight to 5 am. Half return Should be Paid.

First 14kg Luggage Is Free, Extra Luggage Charge Rs. 2/- For Size More than 60 * 40 Cm

Way to Remember Tariff - ( Meter Reading x 8 ) + 3 Rs. = Approx Charge to Pay

K.M -----> CHARGE (Rs)
1 -----> 11
1.1 -----> 12
1.2 -----> 12.5
1.3 -----> 13.5
1.4 -----> 14
1.5 -----> 15
1.6 -----> 16
1.7 -----> 16.5
1.8 -----> 17.5
1.9 -----> 18
2 -----> 19
3 -----> 27
4 -----> 35
5 -----> 43
6 -----> 51
7 -----> 59
8 -----> 67
9 -----> 75
10 -----> 83

Chennai Legal Auto Fares is
Minimum Rs 14.00 and every km is Rs 6.00.

But i don't think anyone, including the rule makers will remember these rates and dont' even try asking for these rates, you would only be laughed at. :(

In Chennai auto fares are a joke. They never agree to anything this side of 100 rupees. If you calculate roughly, they charge around Rs.20 per kilometre.

Nothing is going to teach these guys a lesson except mass boycott, which I don't think will happen.

I was pleasantly surprised to see auto drivers in Bangalore using the meter, and charging fair prices.

It is not different in Bangalore. Auto drivers may be using the meter, but the charge that they are asking will be double or triple some times. I had an experience recently where the meter charge was 25 and the driver asked me 70. And the reason for this was the bad road condition and luggage. I had two bags with me which were not more than 10KG. 4-5 KM also they will be asking minimum 100. Try to avoid auto in Bangalore and use Volvo bus service.

Default Bike Taxis in Goa

I couldn't find the Auto / Taxi rates in Goa, but I am posting this so that tourists get aware of the unique 'motor bike taxis' in Goa. I think Goa is the only place in India where 'motor bike taxis' are legal.

Source: Goa Tourism Development Corporation | Home

Taxis: For tourists, taxis serve as the main means of traveling between resorts. One will find them lined up outside most charter hotels, where a board invariably lists the destinations in and around the region. The fixed rate fares only apply to peak season and at other times one should be able to negotiate a hefty reduction from the demanded fare.
Motorcycle Taxis: Goa's unique pillion-passenger motorcycle taxis known locally as "pilots" are ideal for nipping between beaches or into towns from the resorts. Bona fide operators ride black bikes with yellow mudguards and yellow number plates. Fares which should be settled in advance are almost half the auto-rickshaw rates.
Rented Motorcycles: Renting motorcycles in Goa offer a lot of freedom to tourists. Officially one needs an international driver's licence to rent or ride anything more powerful than a 25 cc moped. Rates vary according to the season, the vehicle and how long one wants to rent it. Most owners also insist on a deposit and passport as security. The range is pretty standard and the reasonable choice is a 100cc motorbike. These are fine for buzzing to the beach and back, but to travel further the stalwart Enfield Bullet 350 cc is popular for its pose value and its British origins. The smaller Kinetic Honda 100cc which has automatic transmission is a good choice for the novice as well as the all-rounder.
Ferries: If autorickshaws are the quaint, essentially Indian mode of transport, flat-bottomed ferries are their Goan equivalent. Crammed with cars, buses, commuters and scooters, fisherwomen and clumps of bewildered tourists, these blue painted hulks provide an essential service, crossing the coastal backwaters where bridges have not been built. They are also incredibly reasonable and run from dawn till late in the evening.
The most frequented river crossings in Goa are Panjim to Betim, across River Mandovi, Old Goa to Divar Island, Siolim to Chopdem across the Tiracol river and Cavelossim in the far south of Salcete taluka to Assolna.

Auto fares in Mumbai suburbs can be calculated using the formula 1.3*x-2 where x is the Meter reading.Whether to round off fractions to higher or lower rupee is left to the whims of the autowallah..

+1 to that. In Chennai, the auto-menace is just too much. Fares cost as much as the cost of petrol needed to reach the destination multiplied by 10. As a result, the last I used an Auto was more than two years ago.

Default BAngalore new auto fare

In Bangalore The factor of increase for the new fare is 1.28 (9/7). So to calculate the approximate new fare, the thumb rule is to multiply the old fare with 1.28. This gives a rough estimate, with deviation of only Rs 1 or so from the exact amount.

Distance in km Old amount New amount

Min 2 km 14 17.92
15 19.2
16 20.48
17 21.76
18 23.04
19 24.32
20 25.6
3 21 26.88
4 28 35.84
5 35 44.8
6 42 53.76
7 49 62.72
8 56 71.68
9 63 80.64
10 70 89.6
11 77 98.56
12 84 107.52
13 91 116.48
14 98 125.44
15 105 134.4
