Delhi News: Cab drivers have been demanding a revised fare for a long time due to the rising oil prices in Delhi. Now these drivers have threatened to boycott the apps till the fare is not revised. Along with this, drivers associated with the ride-hailing platform have announced a digital strike every Monday. Leaders of several driver unions in Delhi said they would boycott the ride-hailing app on the first day of the week until their demand for fare revision is met. These drivers say that from now on every Monday more and more drivers will gather at Jantar Mantar.
Delhi’s Sarvodaya Drivers Association President Kamaljit Gill said on Monday that we will boycott driving for cab service through any app once a week. Sumit Bhardwaj, president of another driver union Expert Driver Solutions, has also announced his support for the weekly protest. Sumit said the drivers had suspended their agitation in April after being given an assurance by the Delhi government. The Transport Minister met us on 19th April and within a day a committee was formed to revise the fares. Although that committee has apparently not done anything so far, while fuel prices are increasing rapidly.

The Delhi government’s transport department had on April 20 constituted a 13-member committee to recommend revision of fares for auto-rickshaws and taxis following massive protests by drivers in the capital. This committee was asked to submit its recommendations within 30 days. Cab drivers allege that while fuel prices have risen sharply, aggregator companies have reduced their per kilometer rate, which has had a profound impact on their earnings.
