Muthu in Delhi autorickshaw

On seeing this video in April 2009, Transport Minister A.S. Lovely had only one question - how can we install GPS in all 55,000 autos? So he was deliberating GPS as far back as in April 2009.

Auto finance mafia

Auto-finance-mafia own or control more than 90% of autos plying in Delhi. The entire Transport Department acts like a puppet in the hands of these mafias. Such brazenness flows from the patronage they are given by Mr. Sandeep Dikshit, a Member of Parliament and the son of the Chief Minister of Delhi.

GPS - nothing but corruption

When we first saw the government’s scheme to install GPS/GPRS devices in all autorickshaws of Delhi, we thought it was a pie-in-the sky dream. But when we dug deeper, what came out was pure 24 carat muck.

    Urban public transport across the developing world is in the midst of a crisis. Cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Sao Paolo, Jakarta and Nairobi have grown dramatically in the past few decades thanks to migration from rural areas and natural population increase. Every new resident requires a place to live, employment and a means of getting from one to the other - be it from a jhuggie cluster to the centre or from a posh colony to an office complex.

  • What would happen if the cap was lifted?

    09 Sep'11     140    Simon Harding

    The situation is familiar to most Delhites: it’s rush hour and you’re looking for an auto. But they all speed past with their passengers. "This city needs more autos", you mutter to yourself, "surely there’s a demand for them".
