Rs 100 base fare: MP urges CM to act against ride-hailing firms

Bangalore, 7/10: Bangalore South MP, L S Tejasvi Surya, wrote to Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Thursday, urging him to regulate auto-rickshaw fares charged by ride-hailing firms.


The letter, which the parliamentarian posted on Twitter, states that ride-hailing firms are charging a minimum fare of Rs 100. This is three times the base fare of Rs 30 for two kilometres as stipulated in a government notification dated November 6, 2021, he said.


Quoting the notification, the MP further said auto-rickshaw fares should be Rs 15 for every subsequent kilometre. The waiting charge is not applicable for the first five minutes and should only be Rs 5 for every 15 minutes thereafter
