The Bombay High Court, on Tuesday, gave a green signal to hike the fare of taxis and auto in the city. The minimum auto fare would now go up from Rs 15 to Rs 17, while minimum taxi fares would increase from Rs 19 to Rs 21.

The new fare will be implemented from Tuesday midnight. The new rates would not be applicable if the meter in the auto and taxi is not calibrated and shows the old fare.
