After govt agreed to consider demands, Indian truckers end 8 day strike
India's Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari late on Friday said the government was sympathetic towards truckers' concerns and had formed a committee to look into their demands.
The All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC), an organization of transporters that organized the strike, had demanded a cut in federal and state levies on diesel by bringing the fuel under the scope of the nationwide Goods and Services Tax (GST).
The strike, which began on July 20, had disrupted production and sales of vehicles in the country and affected deliveries for e-commerce firms such as Amazon.
