Possible Agatha, just as we come across annoying autowallahs, am sure they too come across painful passengers. Here too, outside the institute one often comes across autowallahs hanging around. But ask them for a 7 km ride home, they either refuse to go (because the roads are bad - like I dug them up!) or they want anything between Rs. 150/- to 300/- (depending on their mood at that point of time) to go. Travel by an A/c cab of Ola or Uber is often available for as little as Rs. 120/- (depending on demand). Difference between Uber cab and Uber auto can also be less than Rs. 10/-. That makes it easier to get a prepaid cab/auto from Ola/Uber than hire one directly.
