Mumbai cabbies call off token strike
Mumbai: The Mumbai taximen union which
had called for a token strike tomorrow has called it off after
intervention by Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan.
"We had a meeting with the chief minister today and he
has agreed to most of our demands and therefore we have called
off the strike," Mumbai taximen union leader AL Quadros said to a news agency.
"Our demands, including waiving of the documentary
proof for identity cards and for change of residential address
(for taxi drivers) have been accepted," Quadros said.
He, however, clarified that the waiver will be
applicable only for those cabbies who had register themselves
with the Regional Transport Office (RTO) prior to year 2008
and not for the new applicants post 2010.
"The government has also agreed to award monetary
compensation for the taxi stands which were removed by the RTO
around 10-12 years ago," Quadros added.
