CAG finds anomalies in airport taxi service

Bengaluru: The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) has come across glaring anomalies in the operation of taxi service to Kempegowda International Airport and recommended revamping the entire service.

The CAG, in its report on public sector undertakings (PSUs) for the year ended March 2015, has found a number of anomalies that compromise the safety of commuters. Absence of police verification certificate with drivers, expiry of regional transport office permit, meter calibration certificate and insurance are some of the major anomalies listed in the report tabled in the Legislative Assembly on Saturday. Besides, many vehicles were not fitted with the global positioning system, which is a must as per the rule book.

The State Tourism Development Corporation Limited had entered into an agreement with the Bengaluru International Airport Limited to operate AC and non-AC taxi services to the airport from the City. Permission has been given to operate 500 AC and 150 non-AC taxis.
