IT for Change submitted an initial set of guiding principles necessary to draft the Motor Vehicles Aggregator Rules to the Maharashtra state panel set up for this purpose. Our submission engages with the question of workers' data rights, including access to algorithmic auditing and the right to explanation, considerations for working hours, and protection from reprisals. Additionally, our recommendations include the need for linking the MVA rules with the Code on Social Security to establish a functioning social protection mechanism for drivers – this is happening across several states (e.g., Rajasthan, Delhi, etc.) and is an important measure in achieving rights for workers.
