Mumbai
The taxiwallas have no problems using electronic meters. All the new taxis in town come with one. Their meters also seem to run at a lower speed than the autorikshawallas who continue to use mechanical meters. But that depends on the autowalla who is piloting you.

There's a system in place to calibrate and repair the meters that autowallas use. They need a permission from the RTO to open it up and there are authorised mechanics to do the job. 
The necessary permission to open and repair a meter.
Oh My God. My meter is running fast!
