Bangalore Auto Menace !!!

FYI Bangaloreans.

You are in a hurry to catch the train. You pack all your stuff and frantically run out in the hope of catching an auto. You come out and see 5 autos standing at the corner. You thank God and ask them - "Majestic chaloge kya??” The Answer is "Rs 200 hoga!!”. "Kya?? It just cost Rs 100 till Majestic". "Bahut rush hai sir!!". You move on to the next auto, to try your luck and surprisingly, you have the same conversation "Bahut rush hai sir!!". Finally you give up and bargain the price to Rs 170 and hope you don't miss your train.

Sounds more than familiar??

You stand on the road and keep on asking the passing autos for a ride to your destination - if it's not your day, the autos will not even bother to stop; if you're a bit lucky they might actually slow down to hear your destination's name and think for a second( i always wonder if they are calculating their net profit) and then speed away. However if you are more lucky, the auto guy might actually quote you an exorbitant price and then speed away. But if it's your extremely lucky hour of the day, you might end up getting an auto which is ready to take you to the destination at meter price.

In my six years of existence in Bengaluru, these experiences have been really instrumental in teaching me great virtues - Patience and Tolerance. But at what price??? exorbitant rates, extremely rude behavior and what not ......
After years of feeling used, i set out to find the answer for this misery - was there no government system that could bring these auto guys to justice? As a citizen, how can i express my concern?

This search took me to the Koramangala RTO office (BDA complex) and to my surprise i found that there did exist a government system which i believe 99.99% of Bengaluru is unaware of !!
The System
Note the vehicle number (KA-XX-YY-ZZZZ) and email the details to transcom@kar.nic.in. Based on the prefix XX (for example KA-01), complaint will be sent to one of the ten RTO offices in Bangalore and adjacent taluk areas.
Alternatively, one can also call these offices at the number given below based on the vehicle number prefix and directly lodge a complaint.

Vehicle Prefix (KA-XX) Bangalore location Phone number

KA-01 Koramangala 080-25533525
KA-02 Rajajinagar 080-23324104
KA-03 Indiranagar 080-25254310
KA-04 Yeshwantpur 080-23376039
KA-05 Jayanagar 080-26630989
KA-41 Gyanabharthi 080-28602833
KA-50 Yelahanka 080-28561366
KA-51 Electronic City 080-25735522
KA-52 NeelaMangala 08234-285598
KA-53 KR Puram 080-25617951
Once the complaint is received at the corresponding office, a notice is issued to the address of the vehicle’s registered owner, requiring him/her to turn up at the RTO office within 7 working days. Every RTO has about 10 IMV’s (Inspector of Motor Vehicles) who seize the vehicles which don’t report to the RTO.

The penalty levied from the auto-waalas is rs.100 under section 200.

The various offences among others for which one can lodge a complaint

Refusal to come to destination (Any destination!!!)
Demanding excess fare
Using rough language
Cheat the public, for e.g. taking longer routes.
Faulty Meter
There is also a helpline number - 080-22353785 available Monday – Saturday from 10:00 am - 5:30 pm on which one can call to lodge complaints.

The numbers speak for itself
I was shocked when I found that the Koramangala RTO office received only 5 complaints a month. With over 1,00,000 autos plying on Bangalore roads, shouldn’t it be like 5 complaints a minute?
So, will our impatience always have to take a backseat? Can something be done to improve/compliment the system to make it more effective? Will we get a better platform to raise our voices democratically?

Shoes specially made for losing weight are available today and [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt sneakers[/URL][/B] can be quite effective. These shoes have been out for a while and some companies have risen to the top [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] demonstrated that they can provide a quality product to consumers. One [U]mbt walking shoes[/U] such type of these shoes is the MBT Shoe made by a company called Swiss Masai. In case you [U][B]mbt shoes cheap[/U][/B] did not MBT stands for Masai Barefoot Technology. In this write up we want to take a [U]mbt sneakers[/U] closer look at these special shoes.

The development and idea behind the MBT shoe design is quite [U][B]footwear etc[/U][/B] interesting. What the shoe attempts to do is structure the shape of the shoe so [U]mbt shoes review[/U] that it simulates walking on sand. Specifically, the they want to attempt to make it as if you are walking [U]mbt sandals[/U] along the natural sand environment of the Masai in Kenya. Sports trainers have known for quite a while now [U]MBT[/U] that working out on dry sand is a great way to get in excellent cardiovascular condition. As you [U]discount mbt shoes[/U] walk on sand it creates an uneven surface on your feet and it forces you to shift your center of gravity to [U]mbt shoes review[/U] an unnatural position. Your body compensates for this by using several different [B]mbt discount shoes[/B] muscle groups in your feet, calves, thighs, and torso that you would not use wearing typical shoes. This is the ideas [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] behind the MBT weight loss shoes and it does seem to [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]buy mbt shoes[/URL][/B] work for some people.

More specifically, MBT makes several positive claims [U]mbt shoes review[/U] and benefits from wearing their shoes. They will take muscle groups [U][B]mbt walking shoes[/U][/B] not normally used in walking and make them active. The shoes will give you a better posture, and a more effective [U][B]mbt shoes clearance[/U][/B] gait when walking with or without the shoes. It can [B]mbt shoes review[/B] potentially help you with problems you may have with your back, hips, legs, and feet. The [U][B]mbt walking shoes[/U][/B] shoes can help you recover from injuries to your [B]mbt shoes cheap[/B] tendons, joints, ligaments, or muscles. The shoes are also designed to alleviate tension and stress [U]mbt shoes review[/U] on your lower joints.


Overall owners of the MBT shoe really like the results. [B]mbt sneakers[/B] It is typical that if you walk for three or four miles at a time for several times [U][B]footwear etc[/U][/B] per week you will experience some weight loss. Some people are using them for every day [U]footwear etc[/U] use and find that this helps to keep their legs toned and looking nice. These are just walking [U][B]mbt shoes review[/U][/B] shoes you really do not want to use them for running. It is recommended that you go to a store and try them on, as you [B]mbt shoes cheap[/B] want to make sure the heel is snug and fits correctly. If the shoes fit correctly they should feel snug and it should [B]mbt sneakers[/B] feel as though you are walking on stilts when you walk in [U]mbt sneakers[/U] them.
