Mr Suvarna’s tweet prompted a variety of replies on Twitter.

One consumer made just a few calculations and arrived on the fare Uber ought to have charged. The consumer wrote, “Is diesel/petrol that expensive. As per pic it seems most 50 km. Even with 10km mileage, it should value round 500 rupees. They’re taking 2.5 ok additional for what. 1200 rupees must be sufficient for this trip.”

To this, Mr Suvarna replied that he often paid between Rs 800 and Rs 1,000 with out surge.

Barely elevated cab fares throughout rush hour and within the rain are doable. However when the fares soar into 1000’s, individuals will inevitably be compelled to seek for alternate modes of transport.
