Thanks, Netra, for sharing this. The websites about which I had talked in the post include a calculation for both taxi and auto fare in Mumbai and other cities like Pune, Delhi, etc.
Taxi Autio Fare Service Calculator
Try Taxi Auto Fare service, which works across India. You need to enter a destination and starting point, and it will calculate the auto-rickshaw fare for you.
Calculate Auto Fare with Rick Fare
If you have the internet on your mobile, you can go to Rickfare.com and enter the fare to calculate the amount to be paid. This site is often updated, so you don’t have to worry about the calculation’s correctness. Also, make sure you ask for the latest tariff card from the Auto Drivers so that you can crosscheck the rates with them
In case you find the online service not calculating the rates correctly, it is possible because since the new tariffs came into effect recently and you might like to wait for them to update the calculation.
meter reading * 13 -2
now this has also changed, the rates have been rounded.
I just wanted to add that there is nothing wrong in the increase of auto fares due to an increase in CNG prices. But its also to be noted that the previous rates were not meant for CNG but infact for diesel/petrol. Thus they were charging higher rates from the begining, because the RTO’s didnt lower the meter reading as per CNG users. But then its for the good, none should be left behing. I just wish they would be honest and stopped tampering with their meters, as the difference in the meter reading from one rick to the other is staggering.
I am looking for relation between meter reading and distance traveled.
Dont worry, Mobile 4 Mumbai is coming with interesting solution, Even fare is hiked, you can travel very cheaply and with same comfort…. We are working and likely to take 6-8 month !!!

How to get this rate card on mobile. I am not able chk website on my cell.
Can anyone share the calculate fare formula so i will save these formula in my cell in excle format.

Mumbai Rickshaw meter calculation wef 24th Jun’10
1st unit = Rs 11
For ever subsequent increment per unit (.10) is Rs 1.30
Eg – Meter reading shows 2.00 then
Rs 11 for 1st unit + Rs 1.3 * 10 (units) = 11+13 = 24
@Robin, why should the increase in auto taxi fares be protested against?
Do you know how much CNG prices have increased upto in the last month? Auto taxi drivers too need to make a living in costly city Mumbai right?
THESE INCREMENTS SHOULD BE PROTESTED AGAINST,
PLEASE RAISE YOUR VOICE INDIA
Its fare enough to give them increement.looking at the prize hike.
this autorickshawwallahs never needed an increment,
they r fooling passengers like hell,
their meter`s r so fast ,when ur original meter is 100/- they have tampered their meter so cleverly instead of 100/- they charge anywhere between 130/- to 140/-…they cheat the r.t.o authorities also so cleverly ,whenever their vehicle goes for test or inspection they make the tampered meters as it were, so the authorities also get cheated aftr passing the test again the metre comes to its original tampered meter,for this the r.t.o authorities should gadget themselves with the surprise checks or inspection on road and not to the r.t.o office,but our system will never come with a foolproof initiative,,start punishing them immediately without any bribes?????
The auto wala. are bigger cheat they are cheating us .The auto meter should be check when they are on road by the R.T.O .It better having our own car.
Check out the SmartShehar Mumbai apps on Android phones. The Auto app, not only does the calculation for you, it even allows you to have your own meter on the phone.
Dear all, no need to keep the rate cards, or to login into any website not even rickfare.com, heres a easy way to calculate the fare :
(Meter reading X 1.3) – 2 ruppees = amount to be paid.
Do not forget to round off. If its 11.2 it will be 11, and if its 11.8 then its 12 and if its 11.5 it will be 11 )
e.g: (25 is the meter reading X 1.3) – 2 = 30.5 = 30, you can check this on rickfare.com
take other example : (52 X 1.3) – 2 = 65.60 = 66
I hope that saves your time, offcourse you will ask how to calculate, i hope everyone carries a mobile now a days…. THANKS
I am live at Goregaon ( East ). Here is available Share Rickshaw Stand at Gokuldham School.There is only Stand. How to help us?
whatever malpractices auto drivers are doing are not to be defended. one needs to protest against it.. no doubt.
But i would like to ask one thing to many people that when we purchase clothes or other stuffs in malls how much they loot. eg we purchase a jeans for around 1200- 1500 in malls.its actual cost is 450- 500 RS. but we never protest against it. its for sure that everybody would try to get profit..but how much..3 times..just that plush look reduce your voice. you would feel shy to bargain there… its against your status..
so why this dual attitude?
These days metres are heavily tempered, they have switches to charge customer for night mode
where can i get the latest auto and taxi fare chart for Mumbai for the FY 21-22
This is effective from March 2021
