It is a dream of every Belgaumite to pay the Auto fare by Meter, but it seems we need to wait for some more time as the Auto unions are giving memorandums each day asking for more time. Today one more association Rajya Dalit Sanghrash Samiti demanded 6 months time to get the meters repaired. They said they are not against the meter implementation but they need time to install the digital meters and get the old ones repaired and that there are very few technicians available. They also demanded that mini vans and other Vadaps don’t ply within the 16 kms range.
Even in the past week various associations have demanded more time sighting various reasons and the district administration is also not in any commanding mood to get the same implemented it looks like.
The RTO and district administration must look into this and get the same implemented intermediately.
It is high time that District authorities implement this as the citizens feel this is nothing but a time consuming gimmick. Suppose even if time is given the same thing will happen after 6 months and the story would continue.
