oh you mean auto rates? They never use the meter here and rates are 30 now anyway.

And CNG went up 25% in the last 5 years? But auto rates have doubled. Every time gas prices goes up 25% auto prices double. It works like this.. CNG prices goes up auto prices go up, petrol prices go up auto prices go up, diesel prices go up audo prices go up.. Floods and auto prices go up.. So auto prices go up 4 times as much as prices actually going up.

Would be nice if raises go up like that.

No, my remark, it was a non-optional proposition for them.

Seeing this union giri shite since my birth (having a manufacturing plant myself). These guys are one of those worst shit living on this planet, polluting the air with their infectious breath; yet we really can’t survive without them without ourselves being really a workaholic.

Once a really old man (read a top shot businessman, since deceased) advised me after I had joined my business plant in my native tongue which translates to English something like this- never take your shoes to your head, it shall remain in your feet, because that’s where it belongs.

Absolutely hated it initially, but vigorously realised the truthfulness of the advice in less than 3 months.

I know the union guys are the pits here. It cost us 5000 to unload at customs and reload it to a truck and ship it 200km from customs to the front gate. It cost us 20000 to unload the truck and leave the stuff on the ground and we had to move it from there to inside the house our self. They would not move anything on the ground, it was for moving the stuff from the truck to the ground and would not allow anyone else to tough anything on the truck or even allow us to unload it ourself. They said we can unload it but the price would still be 20,000.

Any place with 4 stories or higher has to use 50% union workers. Who stand around and make non union workers do all the work and they have break every hour, do not allow non union workers to work during those time either. Once I saw a union guy directing the painter outside the building and tie his safety harness to the aluminum window sill. Which is held together by 2 small screws… so if he slipped that was it for him. But they are great at standing around and yelling at other people..

They have people standing at intersections so when they see a truck going to move stuff like when people move they stop it at the gate and demand for loading and unloading. You still need people to actually move stuff into or from the houses.. These guys only load or unload the truck and cost double the entire move including the truck rentals and movers.

Not so hip on unions after seeing all this.. Although I used to be a strong supporter before.

Mumbai and Kolkata taxi rates are similar. The difference is that in Mumbai the first stage is 22 for 1.5 KM and in Kolkata the first stage is 30 for 2 KM. So a bit of adjustment in stage is always possible.
