Illegal share-taxi services thrive in city

Quite a few of the woes faced by taxi users in Mumbai arise from the fact that more than a quarter of the share-taxi routes in the city are unauthorised.

Not only commuters but even taxi unions have complained about the blind eye turned by the authorities to the operation of these unauthorised services.

The services are operated even at prominent locations like CSMT, Gateway of India and Churchgate in south Mumbai using Maruti Eeco vans which are officially licensed to carry six passengers but into which are often crammed twice as many, including children.

Read more about the illegal share taxi services and how it affects the public.

Likely rains, city's hope for clean air

The city's air quality continued to remain in the poor category on Sunday after recording an Air Quality Index (AQI) of 245. Meanwhile, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted the possibility of light rain today, which might settle down the pollutants suspended in air. If there is only drizzle, it may increase the AQI as the pollutants get trapped in moisture resulting in smog.

The IMD has indicated cloudy skies with the possibility of thundershowers and light rain on Monday and Tuesday. This is an unseasonal rainfall due to a cyclone over the coast of Tamil Nadu.

According to the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR) Project Director Gufran Beig, the city's air quality may see a decline or a rise depending on the showers, which the IMD has forecast.
