The next time you board an autorickshaw in Hyderabad, get suspicious if the driver puts his hand under his seat to touch a switch. Because everytime he does that the auto meter will jump by 75 paise.
The city traffic police says 8 out of every 10 autos in Hyderabad indulge in this kind of tampering. And the number of times the drivers press the switch depends on the kind of customer : rich or poor, local or non-local, sharp or absent-minded.
