Bangalore auto

What is a MH (Maharashtra) registered auto doing in Karnataka (Bangalore to be precise)? This is not the first time I have seen such an auto, though I finally managed to take a a pic only very recently.

As far as I know, operating an auto is a regional or a local permit (even autos in Navi Mumbai/Thane are not allowed to ply in Mumbai and vice versa). Ditto for a taxi where permits are given statewise - and they are tourist taxis.

Even if it was allowed why would anyone register in auto in Maharashtra and get it to Karnataka to drive? How would it benefit anybody to do so?

Perhaps the driver relocated and paperwork is in transition?

Bengalooru auto drivers are unwilling to go to many locations. I'd be really happy to see some competition come in.

That is a good one.

On a lighter note, perhaps someone in Maharashtra asked the driver to take him to bengalooru :) and so he did

Even i have seen some MH and KL registrations. Interestingly all of them were non-lpg. guess its their way of circumventing the law
