“These proposals will mean higher prices and longer wait times for riders like me. They will also threaten the livelihood of thousands of hard working drivers. The Maharashtra government has asked for feedback on their proposal. I believe that they should think again. These rules will be bad for riders, drivers and our city,” the petition reads.

By Wednesday night, it had received 18,292 supporters.
