If it refuses then what?Are you aware of the highhandedness of the taxi drivers, especially in Kolkata? If you wave at them, they will stop and ask you about your destination and if they feel they will go but if not they will just refuse. At times, they ask for exorbitant fares if the place is a bit remote and the customers are taken on a ride on such occasions. Because of this attitude, the government here long ago introduced 'No Refusal' taxis with an aim to curb this practice. Other than the yellow taxis, these 'No Refusal' ones come with a blue stripe on a white body where NO REFUSAL is boldly written on the white body. If any of these taxis refuse, you can complain to the authorities along with the registration number of that car and they say necessary action will be taken against the errant drivers. Well, their union is so strong that authorities fear to take action against them. I have hardly found any strong action taken against those drivers and they are carrying out this business as usual. Nobody complains about that because there is a lot of app-based cabs these days.
Now, look into the picture below of one such taxi whose snap I have clicked recently. Tell me, if it refuses whom to complain?
