OFF Topic. Looted by Taxi Mafia at Mumbai Airport

One of our devotee got looted and we thought we should share this with all devotees.

We have removed his name and phone number for security purpose.


I have been looted on 31st Oct by Taxi Mafia of Mumbai Airport.

I came back from Delhi on 31st Oct and landed around 5:15PM. My regular taxi service was not available so I was searching for shared taxi, one agent came to me and asked me for taxi. I wanted shared Taxi but nobody was coming to Nasik in shared taxi so I selected to take private taxi from airport to Nasik. That agent guided me to his Indica with full black glasses, it was parked in parking and one another person plus driver were standing near that car. It was decided that I will pay 2200 INR.

Agent went away and that person asked me to sit inside his car, I told him to give me a receipt first and where to pay the cash... he forced me to sit inside till he makes my receipt.

It was very dark inside and windows were not working. That person was sitting in front seat next to driver. I gave him two notes of 1000 each, he took them and immediately turned back and said sir aapne kam diye, he showed me my 1000 RS note and a fifty rupee note. He duped my 1000 rupee note with his 50 rupee. On arguing that I am not blind and I have given him 2000 rupee. He said that if I don't trust him then take your 1000 rupee back and leave the taxi. He was forcing me to take out all my money from wallet and count... I knew that he was trying to see how much cash I have.

As they were 3-4 person standing outside taxi and I was having my baggage, laptop and cell with me, I decided not to argue more and paid again 1000 bucks.

Now while searching on google about mumbai taxi loots, I came to know that this is very big racket and operating since many year still no one managed to stop it.
They have looted many people till date.

I need your help to stop this loot.

I registered online police complaint at and got a call regarding my complaint. I forgot to note the taxi number hence Mumbai Police cannot help me further but I am thankful to Mumbai Police that they assured me if I visit airport again, they will help me to find that thug. Thanks Mumbai Police for starting your website :)

Shirdi chopper service takes off

The aerial route to Shirdi in Nashik will get a shot in the arm when another city-based private charter company, Wings n Rotors, starts a chopper service to the Sai Baba temple from Juhu on Friday. In September, Vile Parle-based Airnetz Aviation had launched a helicopter service to fly devotees
to the pilgrim site.

While Airnetz operates a six-seater chopper once a week, the new service will be available thrice. Wings n Rotors officials said that they will use a Bell-212, a 11-seater chopper, for the shuttle service.

It will take off from Juhu in the morning and return by 2pm. “The idea is to complete the trip in half a day. People can be back home for lunch,” said Nikesh Goswami, director, Wings n Rotors.

The company says the timings are ideal for corporate honchos who believe a visit to the temple could bring them luck before a crucial business deal. The return trip, which includes an express VIP darshan, costs Rs25,000 per person, excluding taxes. The Airnetz service is priced at Rs35,000 for a similar trip.

Wings n Rotor’s research has shown a potential demand for such a service among industrialists, film stars and senior citizens. “There are a significant number of senior citizens in the city who can afford such as trip. We are expecting about 25 bookings a week,” added Goswami.

In 2007, Jagson Airlines, a private charter company, had started a daily shuttle from Juhu to Shirdi, but shut a month later because it did not get necessary clearances from the directorate general of civil aviation.

He wanted to keep an idol of Murlidhar there. However, according to the legends, Sai Baba manifested himself as Murlidhar and the temple became the Samadhi Mandir of Baba. The Samadhi of Baba is built with white marble stones. The railings around it are full of ornamental decorations. The idol of Baba is a marvelous statue made up of Italian marble built by Late Balaji Vasant in 1954. The temple has an assembly hall for about 600 devotees.

Directions To Shirdi Temple

How to get to Shirdi:
Nearest airports are Mumbai (260 km), Pune (185 km), and Aurangabad (125 km). Flights for all the major cities in India and abroad can be taken from Mumbai. The nearest railway station is Manmad (60 km) on the Central Railway, which is connected to many parts of the country with express trains. Most of the trains touching Nasik Road railway station also touch Manmad. Shirdi has railway reservation office for trains from Manmad. Taxis and buses are easily available at Manmad railway station for transfer to Shirdi. Regular taxi service also operates between Manmad railway station and bus stand. State Transport Corporation and private operators run coaches to Shirdi from Mumbai. The easiest way to get to Shirdi is by bus. If you fly into the Mumbai airport, hire a taxi (the ones that are in lines at the very front of the airport) to take you to the Dadar Bus Stand. The cost is about Rs.-150 to Rs.-175 (make sure they turn the meter on). There are also people who will try to redirect you to their own "private" taxis. These "private" taxis charge between Rs. 400 to Rs. 600 to take you to the Dadar Bus Stand. At the Dadar Bus Stand, there are long lines of small ticket counters that sell bus tickets to Shirdi. Preferably, try to get an A/C direct bus (Rs.-300). If you are not able to get an A/C direct bus, get a non-A/C direct bus (Rs.-150). Buses leave almost every 3 hours from Mumbai to Shirdi. So your wait will not be long. The buses make about 2 stops for food. The restaurants are non-vegetarian. So make sure you pack some snacks and bottled water for the trip. Keep an eye on your luggage! Try to get a bus that departs before 11am so you will not arrive too late at Shirdi.
