Request for cooperation by autorickshaw drivers

Bharuch: 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.

In 2013 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.

The Jai 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.
