Mumbai: Autorickshaws and taxis in Mumbai went on strike on Tuesday demanding an increase in fare because of the rise in the cost of compressed natural gas (CNG).
After an announcement of an increase in fare, the strike was called off by afternoon.
The Maharashtra government proposed an increase of Rs. 2 in the minimum auto fare in Mumbai and Thane.
Though there was no rise in taxi fares, taxis too withdrew the strike.
Commuters had a trying time reaching their workplace. Serpentine queues were spotted at bus stops.
