New Delhi: A section of cab drivers signed up with mobility platforms Ola and Uber went on strike on Tuesday, in Delhi-NCR in support of various demands like fare hike and extension of the moratorium on repayment of loans.
According to reports, over two lakh drivers will take part in the state-wide protest and will assemble at Mandi House later in the day to press for their demands including the extension of the moratorium on EMI payment till December, an increase in fare and withdrawal of speeding violation penalties, said the president of the Sarvodaya Drivers Association of Delhi, Kamaljeet Singh Gill.
“The strike has led to unavailability of cabs in many parts of the Delhi-NCR including Greater Noida, Dwarka and Uttam Nagar,” Gill said, as quoted by India Today.
Taxi drivers in Delhi, of various associations, who work for Ola and Uber has decided to go on strike from Tuesday as their appeal for help did not lead to any action by the government, said Gill.
“Due to the acute financial crisis caused by the coronavirus-induced lockdown, drivers are unable to pay their EMIs. The moratorium of loan repayment ended and the banks are already putting pressure on us. Drivers are scared that banks will tow away their vehicles for not paying EMIs,” he said.
The drivers also demanded an increase in their commission by the cab aggregators. Gill also said that the fare should be fixed by the government and not by the cab aggregators.
