Expect auto, taxi fare hike soon in Mumbai

Here’s another alert for your wallet: Auto and taxi unions are demanding a fare-hike to level up rising CNG prices. Both unions have asked for a hike of Rs 3 in the minimum fare (bringing it to Rs 21 from the current Rs 18 for rickshaws; and Rs 25 for black-and-yellow cabs from the current Rs 22) and hike of Rs 1.50 to 2 on the subsequent clock-ups of the meter.
