I had to catch an 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 the next day’s early morning service. The next day early morning the tempo was at service and from Tapovan, Rishikesh to Haridwar Railway Station I paid Rs. 400 as auto fare.

I remember few years back I was paying Rs. 300 but then tempo owner said nowadays 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 the auto driver to please allow two or three passengers to share the auto space and that money also goes to the driver.

Update

Recently I paid Rs. 450 upon the request from the auto owner. Fuel for sure is getting costly these days.
