Ola & Uber Strike From Today

Ola & Uber Strike From Today

"There is no control over the managements of Ola and Uber". If so, this is a bad news for you.

The cab drivers strike is expected to be seen in the metro cities like Mumbai, New Delhi, Pune, Bengaluru among other cities. In Delhi the availability of Ola and Uber cabs have not been significantly hit.

The transport Minister added that their government is working on addressing the passengers' problems and complaints and said that they will implement the various government measures to curb this.

Naik claimed that both Ola and Uber had promised big returns of more than Rs 1.25 lakh per month to cab drivers who invested anywhere between Rs 5 and 7 lakh. This only happens when the fares are increased, which means the incentives of the drivers will be decreased. A user tweeted how he was travelling in an Uber cab and that the driver didn't even know about the strike.

Uber says on Twitter that it is "fully co-operating" with the investigation and expressed condolences to the family of the victim. The vehicle was reportedly driving early Monday when it hit the woman as she was walking outside of a crosswalk.


Citing low pay, the drivers associated with aggregator cab services had threatened to take their vehicles off the roads across the National Capital Region (NCR) from Monday.

Pasha had organised such strikes earlier but opted out this time because "they didn't yield us any benefits", he said.

The cab companies, Ola and Uber, have declined to comment on the issue.

In Mumbai, no micro or mini cabs are available for Ola riders, while Uber is only slightly better. In order to keep the situation in check this time, Mumbai Police has issued notices to leaders of the union under section 149 of CrPC relating to unlawful assembly. "But drivers are unable to make even half of this because of the mismanagement by these companies", Sanjay Naik of Maharashtra Navnirman Vahatuk Sena told PTI.

Now, the situation is that numerous drivers earn barely half the promised amount which is not even sufficient to cover their costs.

The strike has been called by Maharashtra Navnirman Vahtuk Sena, the transport wing of the Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).

Other taxi hailing unions, including the Mumbai Taximen's Union and Swaraj Vahan Chalak Malak Sanghatna have also extended their support and would be going ahead with the strike if their demands are not being fulfilled. A senior police officer said they were investigating the incident. "Besides this, Ola has started to buy cars and lease it out to drivers, and this has affected the incomes of owner-drivers", Union president Sanjay Naik said. A direct loss of 50% of these driver's income, the same income required to pay the due on the auto they drive while paying for the family's expenses.
