# Thread: Taxi Mileage per kilometer

1. ## Taxi Mileage per kilometer

I have a query w.r.t Taxi rates claimed on tour. My GP is 6600. The Distance from my home to airport is 35 km. The prepaid taxi rates are 35x16=560 Rs. When prepaid taxi availed the amount is fully reimbursed. The same distance when i travel of non-prepaid taxi, I'm eligible only for 35x7(local RTO rate/km)=245. My question is local RTO rate Rs 7/km must be equated to 7x2=14/km na?. Because the prepaid rate Rs 16/km is in fact for 1km to and fro. Same logic should apply for taxi rates as well na? ie. if you are sticking to Rs 7/km, the claim has to be for 35x2=70 km na? Or To and Fro 1 km rate should be 7x2=14/km na.

My query is raised because I get clain Rs 560 for 35 km if pre-paid and same distance if non-pre-paid taxi i get only 35x7=245 which is a big loss. Is there any official clarification available anywhere for this case?

2. Taxi fare is reimbursed in full if a person hire a taxi from pre-paid booth. In other case the claim be restricted to the rates notified by the local transport authority. If no rates are there then the rates of nearby area are considered.
