The Deputy Commissioner also informed the meeting that  another meet  could be convened  in the next three months if the autorickshaw drivers were not happy with the revised fares. He even stated that the autorickshaw drivers union  can even move the court if they are not happy with the fare revision.

He also hinted at the plans of the administration to introduce a toll free number to register complaints against autorickshaw drivers.

Meanwhile, even SP Dr Sharanappa contended that the administration had taken all aspects into consideration before revising the fares and  asked drivers to complain if they find that the revised rate is not profitable for them.
