Vikram Stand, Muni-Ki-Reti, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand
I had to catch early morning train from Haridwar Railway Station. During early winter morning there is less possibility of sharing Vikram (tempo/auto) availability. One day before I had talks with an auto owner for next day early morning service. Next day early morning the tempo was at service and from Tapovan, Rishikesh to Haridwar Railway Station I paid Rs. 400 as fare.
I remember few years back I was paying Rs. 300 but then tempo owner said now-a-days the cost of fuel is not the same as earlier. I agree.
Though I book the entire auto from Tapovan, Rishikesh to Haridwar Railway Station but if I see any passenger on the way waving hands I request auto driver to please allow two or three passengers to share the auto space and that money also goes to the driver.
Recently I paid Rs. 450 upon request from auto owner. Fuel for sure is getting costly these days.
