EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Autorickshaws, which qualify as a paratransit mode of transport, are one of the


most popular modes of public transport in India. They stand incomparable in their
segment of providing door-to door transportation and last-mile connectivity at an
affordable cost to a major chunk of the Indian population. In spite of the existence
of buses and trains, connectivity remains an unresolved issue, due to the
underdeveloped feeder system. Thus, there is a strong rationale to emphasize upon
paratransit modes of transport, such as autorickshaws, which can provide the
missing link.

In addition to the basic problems of livelihood of autorickshaw drivers, other


problems like availability of parking spaces, autorickshaw stands and LPG stations
need to be dealt with. They need to be provided formal training and knowledge
about driving rules, so that they can save money spent on fines and penalties. The
government needs to seriously consider revamping the image of autorickshaws and
educating people about its role in daily life and mobility. Autorickshaw drivers are
a crucial sect of the community and the government must provide them with a
sense of security by not only indexing their income by constant revision of fares,
but also by providing benefits in the form of medical insurance, vehicle insurance
and educational scholarships.

INTRODUCTION

Auto rickshaws are a common means of public transportation in many countries in


the world. Also known as a three-wheeler, Samosa, tempo, tuk-tuk, trishaw,
Scooter, autorick, bajaj, rick, tricycle, mototaxi, baby taxi or lapa in popular
parlance, an auto rickshaw is a usually three-wheeled cabin cycle for private use
and as a vehicle for hire. It is a motorized version of the traditional pulled rickshaw
or cycle rickshaw. Auto rickshaws are an essential form of urban transport in many
developing countries, and a form of novelty transport in many developed countries.
However, in some parts of Europe they remain an essential mode of transportation,
notably Italy's.

It is the world's largest manufacturer of 3-wheelers and accounts for almost 84% of
Indias three-wheeler exports. During the FY 2012-13, it sold approx. 480,000
three-wheelers which was 57% of the total market share in India. Out of these
480,000 three-wheelers, 53% were exported and remaining 47% were sold in
India.

FINDINGS
A majority of the autorickshaw drivers enter the profession at an early age and
come from the lower economic strata of the society. The study revealed that
most of them (54.02 per cent) are school dropouts
Most of the autorickshaw drivers family incomes range between Rs 6,000 to
Rs 12,000 per month

Poor education, large family sizes and the financial burden on the autorickshaw
drivers could possibly be some of the reasons for their unruly behaviour with
their passengers.

SUGGESTIONS
As in the case of regular auto stands, institute a proper system for providing pre
-paid/fixed fare auto stands across the city.

CONCLUSION
From the present study it was concluded that respiratory functions of the auto
rickshaw drivers who are continuously exposed to emissions from vehicles, petrol
vapor and dust were significantly reduced as compared to respiratory functions of
age, weight and height matched control groups. To prevent the respiratory
dysfunction among auto drivers, medical observation and periodic check ups for
pulmonary function tests should be performed.
