Thiruvananthapuram: Taxis and autorickshaws kept off the roads in Kerala demanding fare hike in view of steep increase in petrol prices.

According to reports from across the state, the one-day strike hit mobility of people in major cities and towns while its impact was partial in semi-urban and rural areas.
People who arrived by trains in cities were caught unaware by the strike as people largely depend on autorickshwas for short-distance travel.

Sabarimala pilgrimage has been exempted from the strike.
The strike was called by co-ordination committee of trade unions in the transport sector.
