Dimapur, September 12: Making it clear that the fixation of rate of autorickshaw fares is a prerogative of the state, the Deputy Commissioner of Dimapur, Kesonyu Yhome has directed the Dimapur District Auto Drivers' Union (DDADU) to strictly abide the rules and regulations issued by the competent authority from time to time. 

He said the rates would be revised as and when felt necessary by the authority and not at the convenience and terms of the union.

In an order issued today, the DC also directed the DDADU to adhere to the autorickshaw fares as revised by the Regional Transport Authority (RTA) vide order dated, 19th August 2017. 

The DC also clarified that the indefinite strike called by DDADU in protest against the fare revision made by the district authorities was called off on the same day unconditionally. DDADU has claimed that the strike was called off after the district administration assured to look into their demands within a month's time. 

"The usual practice of the Union to force its way is being viewed seriously by the District Authorities. No Union or Association has the right to cause irreparable inconvenience to public to get to its claims," the DC's order stated.
