Andheri and Wadala RTOs, too, penalised seven auto drivers for not adhering to the December 15 deadline for recalibrations.

The drivers were either levied a fine of Rs. 700 or have their licences suspended for seven days. “From Monday, we will have more squads to keep a check on taxis,” said MB Jadhav, Tardeo RTO.

RTO officers have also appealed to commuters to inform them about autos and taxis plying without recalibrated meters.
