Very good initiative. Hope rickshaw driver will be as happy as seen in photograph while taking actual passengers on pre-paid fare.
Good initiative. Hope rickshaw driver will be as happy as seen now while taking actual passengers through pre-paid booth.
Such services to be consistent, we should use the pre-paid counter. One reason why such public welfare facilities fail is “poor response”.
Also a request to the City Administration to provide adequate shelter for these booths considering the hot & rainy days.
This is a very good initiative. Hope the citizens take benefit of this. Also hope the authorities will consistently provide support and administer the proper functioning at all times & during all seasons.
Please advertise about this Prepaid Booth in all local news paper on every week bases so that people traveling to belgaum city from local villages know about it and take support of booth.
How about one at Railway Station ?
Post-Paid Rickshaw stand should be atleast 500Mtrs away from Pre-Paid Auto Stand.
Excellent initiative. Kindly advise the timings when the booth shall be open and the fares. It is a good idea that some police personnel is at attendance. More over, complaint no. should be displayed for any eventualities. Lastly, the facility needs to be advertised for the public of Belgaum to make use of.
