On 27th October I hired an auto(KA05 B 7058) from my
office on Bannerghatta Road, Bangalore the meter was
faulty and just after a distance of 1km, the meter
reading started jumping from the stipulated 10.00Rs
for 2kms. I brought it to the notice of the driver to
which he started yelling that his meter was correct.
He also further said that I could go ahead and file a
complaint. I called the traffic control 103 to
register a complaint and they gave another number
22942346. There was no response from this number. Now
I know why the auto driver was so fearless even when
he was at fault. There has to be a procedure to book
such drivers and instil fear in their minds.
Does anyone who the correct procedure to file a
complaint against the auto driver? This is not the
first time that such a thing has happened. Seeing the
confidence of the errant driver, I feel not even a
single auto driver has been booked under such charges
based on complaints.
