when u come out of station for auto/taxi with luggage, travel by meter only because there are some auto/taxi wala who don't go by meter n say there own fare for travel.
If you go by meter it will be cheap as compare to their own price because if by meter fare is 10 Rs (example) they will tell you 30 Rs. as their own price.
so also go by meter only n ask first will u go by meter? if yes den go ahead n if no search for other auto/taxi.

This is true and helpful only if one knows the route... else auto will 'ghumao and firao' trip
But there are exceptions to this also...
Once I wanted to board an auto from suburban Ghatkpar to my destination, and it was so near but not a walk able distance also ... so initially three autos stopped and refused... but fourth came and said Yes... I asked him how much 'he said by meter... I asked him how much .. he again said meter... then I stopped asking and got into auto... when
i got down and paid him it was mere 13 rupees. I paid him 15. and was walking away... but he called me and said . take your 2 rupees...
and he refused to keep that 2 also...
and he zoomed out ...
I was also walking to my destination , silently praising him...
