Drivers of two ride-sharing apps launched an indefinite strike on Monday, October 22, in Mumbai and New Delhi, which continues as of October 24. Local reports indicate a surge in the price of taxi fares as well as several altercations between taxi drivers and app-based drivers.
Striking drivers are demanding increased incomes and safety measures.
Individuals in Mumbai and New Delhi should avoid any associated gatherings as a precaution and plan alternate means of transportation until the strike ends.
