According to reports, the cab drivers are really upset with this new rule and they refuse to pay rupees 100 every time they enter Haryana. So the drivers have staged a protest against this new tax and have denied any passengers for Gurgaon.
As per the new Motor Tax, the taxi drivers have to pay 100 rupees every time they enter Haryana, earlier the drivers had to pay rupees 950 every three months.
In a Hindustan Times report, The president of Sarvodaya Drivers Association Kamaljeet Singh said, “Drivers have to stand in queues for nearly an hour before they can pay their taxes. When we had protested against app-based aggregators earlier this year, the Haryana government had intervened and gave us reassurance that driver’s demands will be fulfilled and ease their lives. However, the new tax collection system has only added to the burden.”
