if he drives in reverse gear the meter would (theoretically) show negative amounts

Question Regressing !

How is driving backward going to improve relations with Pakistan?

Just a cheap, publicity stunt; and as Rob_The_Pom has rightly put it, this happens only in India.

Talk of moving forward !

I'm all for individual eccentricity, makes the world a more interesting place but, for the sake of all road users, I hope it doesn't catch on.
What a long strange trip it's been!

...but if the meter runs negative amounts i am all for the reverse driving taxis if at the end of the journey they pay me instead of me paying them :-))

Now that would make a first in India.

A tourist running down the street after the taxi driver yelling 'no no no no no no 25 more rupees!'
