Call 1074 for Auto-Rickshaw complaints in Hyderabad

I had read about this helpline number quite sometime back but never used it - due to inertia, I guess. Today morning, however, was the last straw, when I took an auto from Paryatak Bhawan to Rasoolpura at 4 in the morning. We agreed upon 40 rupees which itself was 15 more than the acceptable 25 rupees.On reaching there, I gave him a 100 rupee note and he returned just 50. I started arguing and tried to stop him but stopped short of physically fighting with him. He just took the auto and sped away.

Anyway, I called the helpline and they took down details like my phone number and all and promised to "forward" the complaint. I am keeping my fingers crossed but will update this post in case their is a follow up action.

  4. Hi Anonymous,

    This post was written more than three years back. It is possible that things changed after that. However, I can advise you one thing. If you use Facebook, you can connect with Hyderabad Traffic Police. They are pretty active on their facebook page. Here is the link

    Do let me know how it goes.

  7. I registered a complaint against an autowala on the no. 9010203626
    But they did not give me any complaint no. Also the guy was not sounding professional. I am not sure whether they will act on this or not.
    Will keep posted.

  12. MANI PENMETSA

    AUTO NO. AP11 Y 7265 has charged Rs.150/- from Rasoolpura to Balanagar. When asked,he started shouting. He tampered the meter. I go regularly from my Office to Balanagar. The correct amount is between Rs. 70-80/-. I request the concerned authorities to take action on the driver immediately. so that next time he will not repeat the same.

  18. Tampered Meter: TS12UA3056

    There should be a online registry to enter the tampered auto meter numbers.

    Just drag the bastard auto driver out of the auto and kick the heck out of him. Just take the below precautions -
    1. Make sure your face is covered.
    2. Ensure that it is not in front of your house or your office.
    3. Always carry a small knife or scissors or a metal pen with pointed refill as a precaution.
    4. Walk away from the scene as soon as possible after doing the needful.

    Don't waste time alerting the cops. They will not take action against the auto wallas. They are shit scared of the Auto unions.
    In fact they will happily sell out your contact details to the criminals.

    V for Vendetta.
