The commissioner has given a notification to stop the sharing auto rickshaw culture in Vadodara city. As per this order auto rickshaw driver cannot allow more than 3 passengers in the auto. Following this traffic police has started awarding penalty to the auto rickshaw drivers and has detained 88 rickshaws.
However, this notification has not gone well with the rickshaw drivers and passengers. The citizens say that boarding a private rickshaw becomes very costly for them and the sharing auto rickshaw is affordable for them.
The rickshaw drivers has said that they will appeal to the commissioner to take this rule back and if needed they will protest against this as well.
