From last seven day, hundreds of commuters are struggling to reach places in Tamil Nadu as the indefinite strike called by transport unions, demanding a pay hike among other things.
Though the transport department has roped in temporary drivers to resume services in the state, the fleet of buses were still not running at its maximum capacity.
The strike, following the failure of talks on wage revision and clearance of pending dues with Vijayabaskar, was declared on last Thursday.
Transport workers have been demanding for a pay revision to Rs 30,000; however, the authorities have only agreed to pay them Rs 24,400 per month.
