More than 100 Uber cab drivers staged a demonstration outside the cab aggregator’s office in Gurgaon on Tuesday. The protest attempted to draw attention to the “injustices” allegedly meted out to them by the company.

Protesters alleged that the company has started diverting rides to their own vehicles, taking away business of independent vehicles and drivers associated with them. They also alleged that Uber has been cutting their  income without giving  proper justifications by unfairly declaring rides as “invalid” or “fraud”.

Drivers also demanded a revision of the prices charged from passengers. “We want Uber to charge the government decided rate.” Kamaljeet Gill, president of the Delhi Driver Union said. Uber officials refused to comment on the matter.
