  • The indefinite strike called by auto and taxi unions of Delhi against app-based taxi services, beginning 26 July has come to an end on Thursday.

  • The unions of around 85, 000 autos and 15, 000 yellow-black taxis protested against Ola and Uber running in the city without acquiring necessary permits and affecting their livelihoods as a consequence.

  • The Delhi government had termed the strike “politically-motivated”, saying banning the operation of app-based cab services does not come under its ambit and arguing instead that the Centre should do something in this regard.
