      Autos may go on Strike in Mumbai from June 18

      MUMBAI: Auto drivers in #Mumbai , Thane and Navi Mumbai have threatened to go off roads indefinitely from June 18 to push for a hike in fares, among other demands. On June 12, Auto union leader SharadRao on Tuesday threatened that there will be an indefinite stir across if his demands for a fare revision among other issues were not accepted by the state government.

      over 15,000 auto drivers, along with BEST and BMC staffers and hawkers, will take out a morcha from Byculla zoo to Azad Maidan to highlight their demands. Auto and BEST services may be affected partially on that day, sources said.

      "There is a proposal to introduce Quadricycles (small cars in lieu of autos) and six-seater taxis in the state. We are opposed to this," auto union leader Sharad Rao said on Tuesday. The union has also opposed the 16-year age limit for autos. "Autos run on green fuel and can be in good condition even after 16 years," he said.

      Rao's demands include a fare hike of at least Re 1, "public servant" status for 5.5 lakh auto drivers across the state and social security schemes such as pension for them.

      Consumer activist Sunil Mone said there was no reason for another hike. "There is no improvement in the quality of service. So why should we pay more fares to drivers,'' he added.

      Now after seeing this I guess all other metros and major cities will start a strike to increase the price. Moreover the fuel prices have also gone over the top so there willbe a strike in other places also

      No dude. People who go in Autos will take their own vehicle or hire more Taxis. So there will be more population on the road IMO.

      Auto drivers will get shot if they increase the prices again. Idiots are already looting people. Imagine 11 bucks a km!! A friggin rented out innova costs that much. What do these frogs think? people will heed to whatever dramas they do? balls i say!!

      Looking forward to Chennai autowalas to follow suite. There will less noise, less air pollution and the roads will become better and safer to drive on. And less scratches on the bumpers as well. I just wish they go off and never come back.

      Who cares if they are living to drive or driving to live?

      Half the auro drivers in chennai are already calling themselves public servants. Putting up auto stands everywhere with police n local political support. Public nuisance. I wish someone would come and put an end to all this menace.

      Demand for "Public Servant" status?? Maybe they should have a UPSC cadre for that as well, if at all..

      Pension?? No more scams please!!
