Ola,Uber and the middle class

The middle class continues to be neglected.Even troubled. Along comes Ola and Uber ,making an attempt to afford reasonably-priced and comfortable transport.However, soon enough trouble is created and this option seems to be up in the air.My young daughter struggled for almost an hour to find an auto in Delhi. Gurgaon is no better.
The professional backbone of this country is sorely neglected.Our votebank-based governance does not address issues properly nor redresses grievance of the middle class more

Fundamental problem is that Ola defaults on payments to drivers on regular basis. They are also known to cheat drivers. If we all decide to pay in cash to the drivers instead of Ola money, driver gets the money upfront. This could be a solution, though this is very much against "cashless" speeches. more  
Touche,Mr Bharadwaj. Given the spirit behind these enterprises, solutions must happen much sooner rather than later. more  
Urvi Sukul, yes and that is why I said that these companies shouldn't be sitting on drivers grievances and make best possible efforts to resolve this stand-off asap. If not, the govt should intervene and use its influence to force these companies to fall in line. more  
Be that as it may, Kamal Bharadwaj , necessity is the mother of invention.Why are these taxi companies in business? Because they are an affordable transport alternative.And for whom by and large?I do not think I even need to answer that more  
I think you are taking this too far and altogether in a different direction. Its the business revenue model of OLA and Uber that the drivers are having a priem with as they have to shell out 25% of their income to the company. It is similar to a dispute between any other company's management and employees. However, in this case we as end users are having a grievance as we are the ones feeling the heat. The right way to solve this issue quickly is that the OLA/Uber management should hold talks with the drivers and reach a consensus asap as it us impacting consumers. The govt can at best act as a mediator. more
