Addressing the media persons, Alok Mittal said, "Auto prepaid booths are there to provide the passengers a very comfortable ride in the city. This facility will be made available at all metro stations in Gurgaon. First auto prepaid booth was installed near Huda City Center metro station where about 58000 passengers have made the use of this facility so far. Around 100 receipts are being received daily at MG auto prepaid booth which was built on June 5, 2014. We are planning the next booth at Iffcco Chowk metro station now. But first we will survey the area."
He further added that their main aim is to end the big problems such as riders jumping red light, over speeding, under age driving, land driving, drunken driving and illegal parking in the city. ''We have decided to make at least 500 challans of the offenders of traffic rules on daily basis. But we have achieved target of 400 challans daily so far. The problem of illegal parking has been almost removed in both east and west. To remove this from the entire city, our process is on.''
At this moment, the auto drivers at MG Metro Station also shared their problems. Auto driver, Arun Kumar Gupta, who hails Rajiv Nagar said, "I am driving auto here for the last two and half years. We pay Rs 5 for one round at this prepaid booth daily. This is a very good facility. Therefore it should be implemented at all metro stations. The booths must be installed at both sides of the roads. We have pay from Rs 500 to Rs 1100 as challans due to non availability of the booth on the other side.
Another auto driver Harish Chandra Tiwari, sector 18 had the same story to tell. He said, "Sometimes the passenger goes beyond the scheduled distance, we have to keep patience with the same fare. We urge the administration that along with the route distance increasing, fare must be increased."
The Police Commissioner ensured them that there will be no such kind of incident in the future. They should also corporate in implementing this policy fully in the entire city.
