The basic starting fare for a taxi is 100 Rs ($2.00 US Dollars). Few people pay this. Here is the deal. Many taxis are 'shared taxis'. Each person in the taxi pays a flat 10Rs ($0.20 US Dollars) and the drivers will cram as many as is humanly possible into their taxi. In the front seat will be the driver and two male adults. Six or more will cram into the rear. When in Rome .. do as the Romans do!

Matthew 18:20 .. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
I just sort of smile quietly to myself!
