Mumbai, September 23: There is an important and big news for Mumbaikars. In Mumbai, rickshaw, taxi fare hike has been approved. Recently, a protest was given on behalf of the rickshaw, taxi union for fare hike. After that, the state government has accepted the demand for fare hike. So from October 1, Mumbaikars will be charged Rs 3 for taxis and Rs 2 for rickshaws. So the travel of Mumbaikars will be expensive. Mumbaikars will have to pay Rs 23 as the Rs 21 rickshaw meter has increased by Rs 2. The taxi meter of Rs 25 will increase by Rs 3 more. Just as the local train is considered the lifeline of Mumbaikars in Mumbai, the black and yellow taxis plying the streets of the metropolis are also considered very important. The taxi union in Mumbai had demanded an increase in the fare by Rs 10, i.e. from a minimum of Rs 25 to Rs 35. Meanwhile, some autorickshaw associations said they too are waiting for the government to hike the fares. If there is no decision, they can also support the taxi strike. The Auto Union had expected a hike in the minimum fare of Rs 3. That means Rs. From Rs 21 to Rs 24. Finally, the government has given the green light to this decision. (Will the Shinde group go directly to the Supreme Court after the Bombay High Court refused permission?) Taxi union leader AL Quadros reacted to this. “This is much needed. Because after the last fare revision in 2021, the rate of CNG has increased from Rs 48 to Rs 80. The Khatua committee had recommended to the government that if CNG increased by more than 25% after the previous fare revision, taxi fares should be revised immediately. “The demand is fair. Cabs are losing Rs 300 a day due to heavy fuel and maintenance costs,” he had commented.
