Hyderabad: Drivers of taxi collectors placed travelers right away
Hyderabad: The termination of flights by the Ola and also Uber vehicle drivers over the setting of settlement is shaking up the plumes of travelers. They additionally grumbled that the vehicle drivers were firmly insisting just cash money settlements and also declining various other settings of settlement and also requiring them to terminate the flights.
“This is strange. A driver asked the mode of payment and when said about the other mode of payment rather than cash, he asked me to cancel the trip,” claimed Ritu Dave, that has actually dealt with the terminations just recently.
However, the vehicle drivers are not enabled to ask travelers regarding the settlement setting and also go down the traveler at their location. The minute the flight is reserved, the vehicle driver requires the location and after that asks the settlement setting and also terminates the journey, if one states no cash money.
Mohammed Nayeem, one more traveler that dealt with the comparable concern claimed, ” The aggregators claim that the passenger can pay the ride fare by any mode including cash, internet banking, debit/credit cards, app-based payment etc. But after the ride is booked, a majority of drivers ask for the cash payment or ask us to cancel the trip. All the claims of the companies are false, and the customers are the ones who are facing inconvenience and are also being charged for the trip cancellations,” he included.
“I have been using the app-based payment mode as several times the customer gets the offers on rides, food and shopping coupons etc., but this was going unused as the drivers are not accepting the other payment modes other than cash,” sharp Rajkumar, that normally makes use of the app-based settlements.
Likewise, there are a number of such grievances increased by the travelers and also were additionally published on social media sites. However, the collectors stay quiet on the concern.
Meanwhile, the Drivers union claimed that there were a number of such factors for the termination of journeys. Several factors for termination consist of the price of diesel rates soaring, reduced price per kilometre and also EMIs of lorries. “When the customer books a ride, the driver needs to fill the fuel for the ride. But when the passenger pays the trip fare amount online/app-based or with cards, it directly goes to the company and the driver faces difficulties filling fuel,” claimed Shaik Salauddin, chairman, Telangana State Taxi and alsoDrivers Joint Action Committee
“When the passenger pays the trip amount through the card of the company app it directly goes to the company and after a week, the settlement will be done. The drivers narrated several stories where they start the day with Rs 500 for fuel and daily expenses and at the end of the day, they are left with not enough money to even buy vegetables to take home. Under such certain situations, the passenger believes that the driver is irresponsible and frivolous,” he included.
