Noida transporters threaten strike

They have been demanding the setting up of a Transport Nagar in Noida


Shivani Chaturvedi | October 4, 2010

Noida transporters are threatening a strike on October 6, protesting against the delay in setting up of a Transport Nagar in the city. The strike could paralyse commutation in the city as it will affect the movement of buses, autos and trucks.

A decision on the demand has been pending since 20 years, according to the transporters, but the strike could cause great inconvenience to the city's commuters, especially since transport options are crunched because of the ongoing Commonwealth Games. Deputy circle office of the state transport authority has called a meeting with the transporters on Tuesday to discuss the issue.


Noida transporters will march from sector 69 to the Noida Authority's office, pressing for a Transport Nagar in the city on October 6. They will then hand over a memorandum to the authorities concerned. The protest march is expected to hit traffic along the route. The deputy circle officer of the state transport authority has met the transporters on Tuesday but failed to resolve the issue or offer any assurances.
