Top 7 Taxi Refusal Excuses of Kolkata Taxi Drivers
Its a common scenario that taxi drivers in Kolkata refuse to take passengers. They are not even bothered about complaint to traffic police and say that ” Go complain , we are not afraid of Traffic Police” . The meter bill comes less than Rs 200 and these taxi drivers are asking anything between Rs 350 to Rs 500 at night 9 – 9.30.
Mamata Banerjee’s sympathy for the recalcitrant Calcutta cabbie has snatched from harassed commuters the one weapon they had in the fight against refusal by taxis. Regular taxi users who had seen the Rs 3,000 fine for refusal to ferry, now the fine for a first offence is Rs 100 – and not higher than Rs 1,000 for a fifth instance of refusal and more.
So who cares?they will keep refusing us and it will keep on going this way.
From our experiences of being refused by taxi drivers, we have made these images depicting the top 7 taxi refusal excuses you will hear while trying to get a taxi in Kolkata streets.
On top of that we have also arranged a video of a taxi refusal.
