If one is travelling all the way to ahmedabad it is better to deboard at maninagar and take an auto as it takes hell lot of time to reach ahmedabad sometimes more than an hour. It always stops on platform at maninagar. If train slows down before maninagar start moving towards loco from internal vestibule and deboard on platform.

yes, but there is a difference between the meters available in Mumbai and those in Ahmedabad:
1) The meters have analog display shown by a dial (kinda like reading a gauge) rather than the digital display that you get in Mumbai (and indeed in many other major cities)
2) The gauge is situated in the front of the rickshaw, where driver sits unlike other places where the display is located in middle, allowing both the passenger as well as the driver to easily see the reading.

Be careful while dealing with rickshaw drivers there, as unlike in Mumbai it is easier for driver to say some random fare and get away with it owing to the older technology used and weird placement of meter.
Also many a times they aren't too inclined to go by meter.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
