Autorikshahwalas are first to annoy you

Autorickshaw-LR

I was travelling by autorikshaw from station towards Godbunder Road beyond Suraj Water Park. It is almost impossible to get the rikshaw from station if you don’t follow the queue outside the station. (There is no fixed location of this queue. This moves as per people’s wishes)

After some struggle luckily I could get one rikshaw without the queue. Now while getting down I had heated argument with this Rikshawala. Thane Rikshaws anyway charge more than Mumbai. This rikshawala started charging additional Rs. 5 for Petrol Rikshaw. This is another surprise for me. Why should I bother If Rikshaw is running on Petrol or CNG? infact it is Rikshawala who should suffer for polluting the city. What I understand is that, this system is not authorized by RTO and there is not even separate rate card for Petrol based Rikshaw charges.

I had seen one more Rikshaw claiming his autorikshaw runs on Petrol and asking for more money. Later on I realized that actualy that was running on CNG.

All I recommend to my Thane friends is be careful with these burglars.

  1. Hi,

    Read yr article and 100% agree with you reg the bad behaviour of rickshawwalla’s in Thane.

    I have also notice one more problem with them and that is the noise pollution they are causing. Due to use of inferior oil and also due to removing of buffer from silencers most of these autos make more noises then trucks.

    Do let me know if you agree to this and how we can solve this.

  2. Y bother?

    Use Private Buses of various Complexes. You can get them in Thane East near Jain temple.

    No Queue. No Crowd. Comfortable Journey. Clean Journey. And they charge max. 10 Rs. And their frequency is too good. Thats Y I gave up using TMT n ST.

    Ricksha ride from station to Ghodbunder costs nothing less than 40 Rs. 🙁

    Enjoy!

  3. Dr.Ajit Gaitonde says:

    Why do some ricks emit so much smoke while a majority are clean ? CNG compulsion has made Thane clean indeed but these ‘smokers ‘ should be penalised.

  4. Some rickshaw walas say no to travel short distance. This happened to me many times at Majiwada flyover.

    And if you tell threaten them to complaint, they tell that nothing can be done since it is not a rickshaw stand..

  5. THE DETAILS OF OWNER ALONGWITH PHOTO MUST ON THE GLASS OF AUTO IN MIDIUM SIZE. THERE SHOULD BE ON PHOTO-SHOP NEAR THE UNION OFFICE OF AUTO,AND UNION SHOUD DO THIS JOB WITH A MONTH.UNION MUST DO THIS JOB.OTHER WISE THE GOVT SHOULD CATHCH THESE AUTOS AND SCRAB THE LICENCES AND START NEW CAB AGENCIES.

  6. THE RTO HAS GIVEN THE PERMISSION FOR PVT BUS NEAR THE THANE EAST STATION.RTO HAS GIVEN PERMISSION THESE BUSES AT THANE WEST SIDE.NEAR GAONDEVI TEMPLE. THE RESIDENTS LIVING AT GHODBUANDAR AHEAD WAGHBIL KASARVADVALI OWLA. FACE THE PROBLEM TO COME AT RAMMARUTI RD AND GHOKHALE ROAD FOR WORK.THERE ARE TMT BUS NO 58 FOR MIRA RD , KASARVADVALI .THERE IS NO TIMBTABLE FOR THESE BUSES EVEN AT THE STARTING POINT NEAR THE STATION AND AT THE BUS STOP.THIS SIMPLE NOTE IS COME IN THE HEAD THE TMT MANAGEMENT.ASHAMFUL .TMT MANAGEMENT NEITHER HAS ITS OWN PLAN NOR ALLOWED TO DEVELOP WITH OTHER ONLY MISMANAGE AND CORRUPTION . IT IS ALL DISCUSTING.

  7. TMC HAS SANITARY INSPECTIORS? I DOUBT. IF YOU SEE THE HOWKARS OF VADAPAW AND CHINESE NOODLE ETC IN THANE CITY AND PARTICLARY AT AHEAD OF MANPADA AND WAGHBIL KASARVADVALI ,THERE IS NO IMPACT OF SANITARY INPECTION. NOT A SINGLE EXAMPLE OF CLEANLINESS IN THE CITY WHERE THE DEPT HAS MAKING FINDINGS. TILL NOTHING ADVERSE HAPPENS IT WILLNOT START.THERE SHOULD BE MONTHLY INSPECTION OF EACH HOTEL AND EATBLES STALL BESIDE THE STREET NOT NEAR TMC OFFICE AND GOKHALE ROAD ETC BUT AT MANPADA ROAD WAGHBILL KASARVADVALI. MUTONSHOPS ARE FOUND IN THANE OPENLY.HAVE THESES SHOPS HAVE INSPECTED? TMC COMMSSIONER MUST SEE THESE DEPTS ALSO NOT ONLY SPECIFIED DEPT’S FUNCTIONING.
