Delhi HC order to stop autos ripping off passengers could have opposite effect

Delhi high court forces Delhi's auto-rickshaws to install compulsory GPS and bill-printing machine that would cost Rs 13,500 + Rs 5,000 annually.

The HC's move was aimed to curb over-charging of passengers but with the transport department already burdened with unmanageable paperwork, tracking every auto's honesty will be impossible, argues Kafila blogger Simon Harding.

The systems could also add hardship for auto drivers, most of whom rent their vehicles, which would probably mean auto drivers are encouraged to haggle even more with passengers to make ends meet [Kafila/ Nyayabhoomi]
