Auto fares to go up in July
Bangalore, dhns:

Commuters may well be prepared to pay more for minimum auto fares in July.

Bangalore Urban Deputy Commissioner M K Aiyappa told Deccan Herald here on Monday, that he has held discussions with the autorickshaw union leaders, who sought a fare hike from the present Rs 14 minimum to Rs 20.

“Auto unions and drivers have sought hike in minimum fares and also per km fare of Rs 7 to Rs 10. We have appointed a special committee with DCP (traffic) to look into the issue. We will come out with a final decision next week. Factors such as Auto-LPG price increase during last one year, inflation index, cost of auto spare parts etc will be considered before a final decision is taken” said Aiyappa.
