One and Half time charge from 10 pm to 6 am
First case against auto drivers for not charging as per meter would be Rs.100 for 2nd offense would be Rs.200 and for the 3rd offense it would be Rs.1000, any more subsequent offense recorded, the permit will get canceled.
Also pre paid auto booths would be commenced soon at CBT, Station and Nehru nagar.
