How is rent determined?
Many factors are considered to decide the fare. Minimum fare, km per fare, waiting or ride time charges, night charges, applicable night timing, night bill calculation and fare amount calculation. The fare is decided on the basis of all these factors. For example, let’s see the fare of Ola for Noida and Delhi. When you take an Ola taxi in Noida, the meter drops by Rs 25 as soon as the journey starts. After that, as your vehicle moves, the fare increases by Rs 5 per kilometer. Somewhere the car is waiting like on traffic or when filling petrol etc., then you have to pay its money too. Re 1 per km is levied as waiting or ride time charges. This gets added to your fare.
In the form of night charges, you are charged one and a half times more than the normal rate fare. Night timing is from 10.30 am to 5 am in the night. The calculation of night bill is automatic. 10 rupees are included separately in this.
