The drivers of the Ola and Uber have put forth a set of six demands in front of the aggregators. "We have the support of almost 80,000 drivers, who will go offline at midnight". Banks are also seizing the vehicles of drivers as they are unable to pay back their loans and feed their family at the same time even after long, strenuous hours of work.

"The cab drivers have purchased vehicles costing around Rs 5 to Rs 7 lakh and were promised earnings of more than Rs 1 lakh".

Out of 14.15 lakh four-wheelers plying on Bengaluru's roads, around 85,000 are estimated to be attached to Ola and Uber. Smaller cities have low prices and to add to that the comfort, ease and security of these cabs has resulted in a rapid expansion of these services. The drivers had last staged a strike in September previous year against lower income returns received from mobile app-based companies. It also claimed that it has received support from most of the union of app-based cab drivers.

An executive of one of the aggregator companies, requesting anonymity, told BusinessLine that there is no official communication yet from any of the drivers about a strike.

If you are having trouble finding an Uber or Ola for yourself, it is because 3,000 of their drivers have threatened indefinite strike alleging "mismanagement" by these companies. "If he does not listen, we may handle the issue MNS-style", Naik was quoted as saying by The Times of India.

Naik further alleged that these taxi-hailing companies are giving first priority to company-owned cars (owned by auto aggregators directly) rather than driver-owned vehicles.

If their demands were not met they would be going ahead with the strike as expected, he had indicated. The notices were issued under Section 149 of the Criminal Procedure Code to prevent unlawful assembly. "If they violate any orders, they are liable to be prosecuted", said Pandit Thorat, senior inspector of the Andheri police station. According to reports, due to the slump in business, there has been a fall of 20% in the number of cabs running on these platforms in Mumbai.

An Ola spokesperson said, "We have been informed by the Mumbai Police that they have taken all the necessary steps to ensure the safety of commuters during their cab rides".
