ISLAMABAD (APP) - The commuters in the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, while complaining about overcharging by the taxi operators, have demanded the installation of fare meters in the cabs. Currently the taxi users are at the mercy of the operators who use their own writ while fixing the fare for certain distances. Complaining about the high-handedness of taxi drivers, a commuter, Sabir Ahmed, said though the distance between his residence and the office at the Zero Point was hardly four kilometers, fare are charged between Rs 60 and Rs 70. He said that the authorities concerned should take step for introducing meters on the patron of Karachi to rid the commuters of undue burden. He said after installation of meters it would not be possible for the taxi drivers to overcharge the passengers at their own will. People who regularly travel by taxi told the agency that the fares for even short distances have been considerably increased by the taxi drivers. I used to pay Rs 50 for travelling from G-9/4 to Zero Point about a month ago but now fare stands at Rs 70, said Aslam Khan. With no fare regulation for taxies in the capital, the taxi drivers demand money they wish for. Mohsin Khan, a driver, said he has been driving for the last 10 years and all his customers were happy. Taxi drivers in the federal capital refuted commuters claims that they overcharge. An official of ITP told the agency that the decision to introduce taxi meters in the Capital are under consideration and in near future it will be introduced.
