Auto rickshaw drivers on 15 September 2014 decided to display off-duty boards after completion of work.

The move was taken to avoid being challaned by the Delhi Traffic Police for refusing passengers after work. The boards will be displayed from 17 September 2014.

Traffic police have been prosecuting auto rickshaw drivers who refuse to ferry commuters by issuing challans of 2000 rupees each.

Besides, auto rickshaw driver also have to name the area on the board where he is going. So that passengers going towards that area can hire it.

Comment

This may be a good move for both commuters and drivers to legitimize their time for rest, meals, etc. This will also reduce commuters being refused based on the feasibility of the journey requested.    

However, it may not reduce the commuters' grievances as there is no specific time that the drivers can go off-duty, neither is there any rule dictating when they can go off-duty.
