Auto Taxi Fare Hike Likely: Auto taxi fares may increase in the capital Delhi. The committee constituted by the Delhi government to review the auto-taxi fare can recommend an increase in auto-taxi fares in proportion to the increase in CNG prices.

Decision on auto-tax fair soon!
Before the Committee, some auto-taxi unions expressed concern over the hike in fares, saying it would increase their competition with cab aggregators as these cab aggregators continue to offer rides at subsidized rates. In fact, the Delhi government had formed a committee to review the auto taxi fare, which has to submit its report by the end of this month. The members of the panel are trying to know the opinion of the drivers about increasing the fare by traveling in auto-tax. This committee will soon submit its report to Delhi’s Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot and later approval will be taken from the cabinet to increase the fare.

CNG costlier by 41% in 6 months
Let us tell you that before October 1, CNG was being available in the capital Delhi for Rs 45.5 per kg. At present, the new price of CNG in Delhi is Rs 73.61 per kg. That is, within just seven months, CNG has become costlier by Rs 28.11 per kg. Let us tell you that due to the increase in the prices of natural gas, CNG has become costlier by about 60 percent in seven months.

Auto-tax drivers were on strike
In fact, in April, the auto taxi unions also went on strike to demand an increase in fares. The Auto and Taxi Association of Delhi had also written a letter to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal demanding a subsidy of Rs 35 per kg on CNG.
