    Respected Madam.
    I have request regarding the Auto Rickshaw rules.What is the use of fixing Fare Meter in Auto rickshaws? In my knowledge this meter is for avoiding the dispute of fare between the Auto driver and passenger. But now the meter is only working and operated only for Testing purpose. Auto drivers are charging the passenger as much they want. So please do something to do the rule to be followed. In every Panjayath and Municipality are must use the Meter for charging. The auto Rickshaw drivers are robbing the people.So please make the law to be followed That will be a great job for the people.Now the Meter is operating only in citys like cochin and Trivandrum. We are also living in Kerala.Why the rule is not followed in Municipalities? Thos who are living in Municipality is not a citizen of India?
