Autorickshaw union threaten to go on strike
New Delhi: A prominent Autorickshaw union
on Wednesday threatened to go on strike if the city government does
not withdraw its decision of making it mandatory to install
GPS in the three-wheelers.
The city government has issued an order asking all
autorickshaw owners to install GPS in their vehicles.
"We go on strike if the government does not review its
decision within next seven days," general secretary of Auto
Drivers Welfare Union Rakesh Chandra said.
The city government, while announcing the hike in auto
fares in June last year, had declared that permits of
three-wheelers will be cancelled if Global Positioning System
(GPS) was not installed in the vehicles.
Transport department had recently asked the auto
owners to install GPS as soon as possible.
