Cost of Transport

If, you have used an auto or a taxi in Delhi, you know the fares. My experience is that, the fare changes on the basis of need and from person to person. If you thought the auto and taxi fares in Delhi were very high, think again. Here is a lowdown on the fares of auto and taxi in the 4 metro's:

AUTO FARES

DELHI*

Rs. 8 on 1st km thereafter Rs. 3.50 per km



MUMBAI*

Meter Reading x 10 - Re1

KOLKATA

Ply fixed routes for fixed fares

CHENNAI

Rs 14 1st km thereafter Rs 6 per km

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TAXI FARES

DELHI*

Rs 13 on 1st km thereafter Rs 7 per km

MUMBAI*

Meter Reading x 14 - Re 1

KOLKATA

Meter Reading x 1.8 - Rs. 2

CHENNAI

Rs. 50 on first 3 km thereafter Rs 10 per km

In short the auto and taxi fares are lowest in Kolkata. So the eastern part of India is still cheap as far as transport is concerned.
