Pune: Deputy Regional Transport Officer Sanjeev Bhor chaired a gathering at Pune RTO, bringing together auto unions, cab associations, and consumer forums on Monday.
During the meeting, the cab rates were determined by the Khatua committee as per the following guidelines:
1) For non-AC Cabs, the fare for the first 1.5km will be Rs 31.
2) For each subsequent kilometer traveled in non-AC cabs, the fare will be Rs 21.
In the case of AC cabs, an additional 25% of the aforementioned rates will be charged. For AC cabs, the fare for the first 1.5km will be Rs 39, and for each subsequent kilometer, it will be Rs 26.
The rates will be implemented once they are approved and this rate has gained acceptance from all auto and cab associations, resulting in a successful meeting.
Speaking to Pune Pulse, Keshav Kshirsagar, Baghtoy Rickshawala, added, ”During the protest, demand was made to fix cab rates. In today’s meeting, those rates were kept and will be approved by the RTA meeting. In order to provide a fair chance to autorickshaw drivers and cab drivers and eliminate competition among companies, it was necessary to fix rates for cabs.”
