SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar, Sep 5: Coming out of slumber to implement High Court directives on metering of auto-rickshaws, the administration held a high level meeting to discuss the matter.
Prompted by a GK report that passengers particularly women have to face embarrassment over arbitrary fare charged by the auto-drivers, who allegedly overcharge, the officials called the meeting.
Sources the District Development Commissioner, Er Farooq Ahmed Shah chaired meeting, which apart from others was attended by Superintendent of Police Traffic, Haseeb-ur-Rehman, RTO Muhammad Anees and Legal Metrology officials.
The DDC directed the Legal Metrology officials to file within a fortnight the proposal to get the rickshaws metered.
“Nobody will be allowed to violate law or take people for a ride. Metering has to be done at an earliest so that the people feel sigh of relief,” the DDC is understood to have told the meeting.
When contacted Er Shah confirmed the development saying “Government has taken a serious note of the problem and it will be solved on priority.”
