Come June, hiring autos will be easy

Come June, hiring autos will be easy

Bangalore: If all goes as per police plan, come June, hiring an autorickshaw will be minus the drama over excess fare and the drivers’ preferred destinations. With the new initiative, the autos will come to your doorstep after the customer dials or SMSes 9844112233 or by logging on to
And to make it easier for non-Kannadigas, the dedicated call centre established to co-ordinate auto bookings, will have employees fluent in Hindi and English too. And keeping the security in mind, all the passengers’ details will be registered at the Call Centre.
The new scheme — “Easy Auto” — will be flagged off on June 1 at 5 pm by the transport minister.
The “door-service” will be for those who register themselves under the scheme. Others have to take the autorickshaw from the ‘Easy Auto’ stands.
The authorities are also planning to introduce autorickshaws exclusively for schools and bring in auto-pool system, set-up easy auto kiosks, encourage women auto drivers and surface transport integration.
The system will also enable the autorickshaw drivers with several facilities like insurance cover up to Rs one lakh and Rs 2,000 per year for their children’s uniform and scholarship.

Nobody is talking about how the problems that exist now would be avoided in these articles. There are so many questions to be answered. Okay, you would get an auto but thats half the problem solved... what next.... how do I make sure I am charged correctly, how I ensure he would be punished or banned from easyauto if he misbehaves etc etc.
