Ola, Uber cabs not plying till Tuesday

Those depending on taxis will now have to look at other options as taxi drivers associated with app-based services have decided to stay off roads till Tuesday.

This decision was taken after over 2,000 taxi drivers staged a protest in Murgeshpalya, opposite Ola head office on Thursday. Tanveer Pasha, president of Ola, TaxiForSure and Uber (OTU) Drivers’ and Owners’ Union, said that the drivers have decided not to ply taxis in the city until their problem is resolved.

The cab drivers are protesting against Ola and Uber’s plan to stop incentives and fix charges based on government rates, besides removing attachment clause, among others.

“We sat on a day-long protest opposite Ola head office, but no official came to speak to us. They came out only after the police intervened when things went out of control. After receiving an earful from the police, the Ola spokesperson told us that their seniors are in Delhi and would return on Tuesday,” Pasha told Deccan Herald.
