The auto and taxi unions in the capital are planning to go on a strike on Monday over Delhi government’s recent order making GPS meters mandatory in all auto-rickshaws if they are to be given a fitness certificate.
An annual fitness certificate is mandatory for commercial vehicles like auto-rickshaws and taxis to ply on Delhi roads.
The order, issued by the Transport department, essentially means that old auto-rickshaws, numbering about 55,000, will have to get their meters replaced. The order came into effect on April 30.
“No prior intimation was given to us. With no elected government and the code of conduct in place due to the Lok Sabha elections, the bureaucracy is doing whatever it wants without taking us into consideration,’’ Kishan Verma, president of All Delhi Auto Taxi Transporters Congress Union, said.
Besides this, the unions have also been demanding a policy for replacing auto-rickshaws which are over 15 years old.

“We want a policy for replacing vehicles which are more than 15 years old. The government has been accepting files for replacing such vehicles but have done nothing more than this. We don’t know what their policy is on this issue,” Rajinder Soni of the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh said.
A Transport department official said they have already awarded the tender for setting up scrapping units for such auto-rickshaws to two companies.
