Ola, Uber Drivers' Strike Fails to Count in Delhi
New Delhi: A one-day strike called by Ola and Uber drivers in the capital had no major impact today as commuters easily found cabs to reach their destination during the morning rush hours.
Although cabs were easily available on several routes, app-based cab aggregators resorted to surge-pricing on some routes.
The situation remained normal as the auto and taxi unions have decided not to participate in the strike.
"We will not support the strike in Delhi," Rajendra Soni, the general secretary of both the associations, said.
SDAD, which claims to represent to 1.25 lakh drivers of Ola and Uber, has demanded that fares be increased from existing Rs 6 per km to around Rs 20 per km. They also demand abolition of the 25 per cent commission the drivers are charged by companies.
In February this year, a strike called by SDAD had hit hard the commuters in Delhi-NCR as most of Ola-Uber drivers remained off road for 13 days.
