Users can also see fare and distance calculator while using auto-rickshaw, taxi and radio cab, can lodge complaints against autos, taxi in case of harassment, overcharging and misbehave.
The app helps its users in locating nearest pit for vehicles towed away by Traffic police when parked illegally. Also users can make direct calls to emergency numbers in case of exigency and can also see FAQ about Delhi Traffic Police and the provided services.
Currently the app is available for download from Google Play Store for Android mobile phone users and very soon shall also be available on Windows and Apple Store.
