Auto Fares hiked further from 22th March 2012 in BangaloreThe Auto Rickshaw Driver's Union (ARDU) had demanded for hiking the fare from the already existing Rs. 17/- meter value to Rs. 20/- minimum meter value. This is because of the recent hike in the LPG prices by over Rs. 3/-. The Government have sanctioned this request and henceforth effective 11th March 2012, the commuters have to pay Rs. 20/- for the first 1.9 kilometers and for every kilometer Rs. 11.
