New Delhi, 13 April 2022: Petrol and diesel prices have increased by up to Rs 10 in the country from March 22. At the same time, the price of CNG has also increased by Rs 15 in the last three months.
Due to this, Ola-Uber was under tremendous pressure from the drivers to increase the service rate. Considering the huge demand from drivers, Uber has increased its fares by up to 15 percent in many parts of the country, while Ola has increased its fare by up to 11 percent.
Driver unions have demanded a reduction in prices of CNG, petrol, and diesel or a waiver of fuel duty for passenger vehicles such as city-run auto-rickshaws, cabs, and tourist vehicles.
According to reports, Delhi Taxi, Tourist Transporters Association, Sarvodaya Driver Association of Delhi Expert Driver Solution Association, and Sarvodaya Driver Welfare Association will protest against it on April 18 at Jantar Mantar if the government does not reduce fuel prices.
