The commuters in the Delhi-NCR region are in for a major problem today as the drivers of two app-based cab services Ola and Uber have threatened to go off roads for a day as a mark of protest against "low fares."
Prior to this, they had gone on strike in February too, which lasted 13 days affecting transportation in Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad and Faridabad. The companies had resorted to surge pricing during morning and evening peak hours then.
The drivers' association demands that fares be increased from existing Rs. 6 per km to around Rs. 20 per km. It also demands abolition of 25 percent commission the drivers are charged by companies.
