Auto rickshaw is the only tool for its driver to carry the responsibilities of
his entire family. As being serviceable, they also take care of the traveler's
budget and provide the services in the loss.
Gujarat government had revised the autorickshaw fares. However, auto rickshaw
drivers of Bharuch didn't raise the fares for the passengers and endured the
loss. The auto rickshaw not only runs on CNG gas, it also needs maintenance,
RTO passing and insurance. But due to the inflation, the cost of maintenance of
tiers, tubes and other spare parts of auto rickshaw has increased along with
the rates of RTO documentations. The insurance companies have also imposed a
sharp rise of about 150-200%. Hence, the revised fares of 2013 will be
implemented from 12th January 2018.
Bharat Auto Rickshaw Association has requested the people to take the note of
the newly revised fare price list and to cooperate. The new fare price list
given to all the autorickshaw drivers are according to the revised prices by
Gujarat government in 2013.
