cab strike in Delhi

Amid the surge in petrol and diesel prices, the taxi drivers’ association and auto-rickshaw unions have called for a chakka jam for two days from April 18. Since April 8, taxi and cab unions have been protesting for a cut in fuel prices, and on Monday, the autorickshaw union protested for a Rs 35 subsidy on CNG prices.

The Delhi Taxi Tourist Transporters Association, Sarvodaya Driver Association of Delhi, Expert Driver Solution Association, and Sarvodaya Driver Welfare Association have given the Centre and the Delhi government a six-day deadline to modify the rates, failing which they will go on strike.

Sanjay Samrat, President of the Delhi Tourist and Taxi Transport Association said they held a protest on April 8 against the fuel prices hike and submitted a memorandum to the central and Delhi government, but to no avail. According to the official reports, cab unions have decided to continue the protest till the government fulfills their demands. Samrat said the transport association will go on an indefinite strike from April 18 and no vehicles will ply on roads.

Cab and taxi drivers, including those hired by private aggregators, have requested a government app with pre-determined fares.
The Delhi government should establish a taxi and cab app similar to Ola and Uber, said Ravi Thakur, President of the Sarvodya Drivers’ Welfare Association. We need either a revision of the fuel price or a fare hike, he added.

Furthermore, the Delhi Auto Sangh will stage a separate protest against rising CNG prices, late fitness fees, and mandatory online driver behaviour training. Rajendra Soni, President of the Delhi Auto Sangh said until the government grants a Rs 35 concession on CNG rates, all 50,000 autorickshaws and 24,000 Gramin Sewa vehicles would not ply on Monday.

The petrol and diesel price have increased by Rs 10 per litre since March 22 bringing the price up to Rs 105.41 and 96.67 per litre respectively. While CNG prices in Delhi have increased by Rs 12.48 per kg taking the per kg price to nearly Rs 69.11 per kg.
