Most of us use/have used auto-rickshaws at crucial times, sometimes or the other in our lives. In cities likes Chennai, many auto-rickshaws don’t use meters. In Bangalore, the auto-rickshaw guys demand over the meter. In Mumbai, the minimum auto-rickshaw fares were renewed lately. How do we know what’s the right fare to part with?
Now with technology to help, e.g. Google maps, which states the distance between two places, can’t we have an mobile/sms application that calculates today’s approximate meter fare between our present location and our destination?
