In August this year, the Mumbai and Thane Regional Transport Offices (RTO) had launched a crackdown on auto-rickshaw drivers who refuse short distance rides and overcharge passengers. The RTO officials disguised themselves as passengers and launched a campaign in February 2019, following which nearly 12,342 auto drivers were found flouting the norms. Moreover, over 5,500 drivers were booked for over-seating, 6,257 were not carrying licences and 42 were fined for overcharging.
