False meter Taxi fare

I did booked a taxi(lal_peeli) on 21 June 2022 at 10pm night in borivalli west station to boisar(palghar district) for which I asked him about fare ,he told Me to give fare according to meter reading for which i get ready to pay , they were two of them one was driver and his friend was unnecessarily in cab. At nagazari village approx 10 km before boiser ,around night 1 am he told me to take out money from ATM I said ok I will take it out , when I asked him how much fare is now till, he said 4000 according to meter reading till now,after reaching boiser it will be around 5500/_he said. Where as fare for uber taxi is 1700 from borivelli to boiser. I just take out my bag and said i will not go further ,for which he started abusing and start fighting with me and forced me sit in cab, they were two. As someone nearby called the police then he settled down the problem. Taxi no was (MH 01 .. 0027). I Request from RTO inspector to take serious action against these type of frauds. My name is Saurav jha , mob no. 7979916102

fares overcharged as taxi meter being tampered

The taxi no MH 01 AT 5826 has tampered with his meter and is overcharging customers with the taxi fares. I usually travel from Worli to Bandra highway and the maximum meter charges should be around 200 rupees.But the taxi driver has charged us 285 rupees till the highway after enquiring with him he said that his meter wire was broken. Also we paid him 70 rupees for the toll as the taxi driver brought us from the worli sea link bridge. This man forced us to pay the complete fare, as we were ladies travelling in the cab we did not have much arguement with him. Request you to kindly look into this matter as this might save other passengers from being overcharged.

Currency exchange fraud done by cabbie

Dear Sir ,

one of my Iranian friend had visited the city on Tuesday and he got cheated by a taxi driver .

The taxi driver on context of exchanging currency flipped the 100$ notes to 10$ note , he paid him 200 $ but taxi driver said its only 20 $ .He knew that he was not having any 10$ notes so he was very sure on that .

He also charged him 2800 instead of 600 from International to Colaba.

Taxi No is MH 01 BG 2600 Silver Ertiga .

Kindly contact us on 0091-9867546511.

Thanks & Regards

Taxi passengers

Share taxi service to Hajiali near Mahalaxmi railway station boards 10 people when they are authorized to carry only 6 people. This is extremely risky to peoples life and many time school / college students take the ride as well. Trafiic police who are present just a minute walk away from the stop, ignores the situation

Today(16-Mar-2016) at 11:00 am we had boarded a taxi from Mumbai CST railway station. The driver told that we will be charged as per meter, so we agreed. On reaching our destination ie Airoli the meter was showing 660/-. This was the correct amount as it costs this much only. Now the driver told us it's 1000/- bucks as it's a metered taxi and showed us some card. We told him that we agreed for paying by meter but he didn't agreed and took 1000/-. As i was with my toddler son and wife so was not able to go to police station with him regarding this. So, i took some picture which i am uploading here.

The taxi number was MH.01 AT.1233

Please do something as they are giving Mumbai taxi drivers a bad name.

Improper meter

Hello Sir/Madam,

I took taxi (MH01 BD 3392) from Institute of Chemical Tehnology (ICT), Matunga to central Matunga station (stopped right in front of arya bhavan) on Dec 14, 2015 around 3:40-3:45 p.m. in front of college. It takes only Rs. 22 from ICT to matunga station.

This taxiwala missed VJTI (college opposite to ICT) u turn and took the next u turn and took me to matunga station. yet meter should have shown only Rs. 22 max to max may be Rs. 24 but his meter showed Rs. 27. Police also intervened and asked me to complaint at RTO..so its a matter of truthfulness and not few rupees.. I am of the kind who can leave extra money out of charity but at same time cant tolerate cheating be it even a rupee. He was very rude also.

Please find attached photo of taxiwala and his nameplate.

Kindly take the matter seriously and do the needful.

Thanking you

Reg : Complaint against Taxi Driver for Overcharging, abusing and fleeing with excess amount of Taxi No. MH-01-AM-6278
Maruti Omni. On 06-10-2015, 5.00 pm

Dear Sir,

Myself along with my wife and two friends arrived Mumbai CST from KASARA by CST bound local train at 3.30pm on 06-10-2015

We came out on main road had our lunch and were waiting for taxi to reach our home at CP tank, near VP Road Police Station, out side Shivala Restaurant adjacent to Hotel Sheetal Inn. After waiting for almost 15 mins we boarded Taxi no. MH01-AM-6278 Maruti Omni. We were carrying two luggage and a small hand bag, which were kept in the boot on the taxi.

After reaching the destination ( VP Road Police Station ) the driver demanded Rs.150/- as the total fare including luggage & metre. Whereas the metre was showing Rs. 72/- I refused to pay Rs. 150/- and gave him Rs. 100/- note and and asked for balance change after luggage charge. He abused my bad words and flee off with Rs. 100/- as it is.

I managed to note his taxi no. to write this to you. I request you to take stern action against him, so in future no other citizen is harassed, abused or overcharged by such drivers.

Your prompt action in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Faulty Meter

On July 15, I took taxi number MH-01-AM-9488 from Indiabulls Finance Center (Elphinstone) to Mindspace (Airoli) around 12 noon. The normal fare on this route is Rs. 450. But, the meter on this taxi showed Rs. 690 at the end of the journey. When I argued, the taxi driver said that this is because we took a wrong turn - but I do not agree to this because the long turn can cost maximum Rs. 50-70 extra, not Rs. 240 extra! I paid him Rs. 690, but I want you to take action against this driver. His meter is faulty and he is not accepting it!

Very High Taxi Fare Charged

Dear Sir,

We hired a taxi from road side, from Check Naka near Muland to Boriwali railway station. The distance was approximate 25-26 KM. But taxi driver said that distance is 45 KM & he will take Rs 23 per km. He took 1000 rs from us for such a short distance. When we oppose he start shouting & forced us to give money. He even took extra toll tax for returning back.

We hereby also attached a photo of car with registration number. We sincerely request you to please take strict against him, so that he will not do it again with other passengers.
