NEW DELHI: Delhiites may face major problem commuting on November 11 (Monday) with drivers working for different app-based cab aggregators planning to go on a one-day strike.

"This time there is no surge pricing during the oddeven scheme and cab drivers have to bear the brunt of it as they are working very hard but unable to earn any extra money. In fact, the drivers are running their cabs at peak hours with high traffic but getting the usual fare," said Kamaljeet Gill, president of Sarvodaya Drivers Association of Delhi. "As a result, many drivers are bearing losses in operating their cabs," he said.

Gill said that eight different unions representing cab drivers have taken the decision to go on a strike on November 11, which will be the second Monday since the launch of the oddeven scheme. "Cab fares are less than that of auto rickshaw and we are demanding similar fixed fares for cabs too. Cab drivers have to work 14-15 hours every day to earn a living. If our fares are fixed, we can work 10 hours and then go home," Gill said.
