Definition

The practice of auto rickshaw drivers to charge twice the fare shown on the meter under various circumstances. For example: after 11pm; during rush hour; when taking you to Basavangudi; or whenever they feel like it.

Not to be confused with Double ka meetha.

Usage

You: Auto! Basavangudi hogtheeya?
Driver: Ba. Double meter.

Deccan Herald: "No respite from 'double meter' as authorities pass the buck. The hyped tariff rates by autorickshaw drivers especially during the night have put the common man in distress."
