New Delhi:

Amid protests by sanitation workers in Delhi, MCD has decided to increase toll tax to control fund crisis.

The rise in toll tax will vary in range of 7% to 66% and will be applied from February 1, 2016.

Nearly 1.5 lakh workers from various departments of Municipal Corporation of Delhi have been protesting from past four days due to salary issues.

Delhi Govt vs MCD Workers

The rising protests have put Delhi government against sanitation workers; on one hand Kejriwal govt is claiming full payment of salaries and on the other hand protestors are saying that funds released are not enough.

In an attempt to find out way, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal proposed dissolution of MCD and hold fresh elections.

Delhiites problem

With sanitation workers not lifting their strike, the national capital has been covered with a thick layer of garbage on roads. The issue will densify with health problems people will face due to non-cleanliness.
