For that, the drivers here are demanding If I go by meter, it will hardly take to but they are demanding any fare they want. People are neither seen following the law nor fearing cops’ R300. R100 R150, passenger from Jaisalmer Even before our train halted at Bandra terminus, auto and taxi drivers had managed to enter the compartment. Now I am waiting with my kids while my husband haggles with the drivers. Why can’t they just ply by meter?’ passenger from Ahmedabad ‘Earlier there was a pre-paid taxi stand, but it is no longer functioning. Now the drivers charge us double. From here to Ulwe, it should cost hardly R700, but they ask for R1,500. Ola or Uber will take 20-30 minutes to arrive, so we have no choice but to agree to the demands’ SMITA JAIN, ANAND AHUJA,
