Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva issued notice to the Centre and Delhi government and sought their response on the petition filed by Delhi Commercial Drivers Union which sought direction that the committee should ascertain whether these drivers be made eligible to receive benefits such as compensation in cases of accidents or deaths.
The plea filed through advocates Akash Vajpai and Shoumendu Mukherji sought that the committee should be made to look into their complains such as work and pay conditions of drivers and suggest some recommendations in order to improve their work and pay conditions.
The plea alleged deplorable working and pay conditions of the drivers saying that drivers have to suffer due to "arbitrary deductions in their payments without even giving them a chance to respond".
It added: "The drivers are demanding a revision in the minimum fares and the bringing back of bonuses that were on offer in the initial days."
