AAP Delhi Government bolsters citizens’ safety; app-based taxi services directed to submit data within a week

The transport department on Thursday directed Ola, Uber and other App based taxi services, the operations of which are already banned in the national capital, to furnish all relevant data within seven days.

The decision was conveyed by transport minister Mr Gopal Rai in a meeting with various taxi operators.

The minister asked the App-based taxi services to provide details about drivers registered with them and registration number of taxis.

App-based tax services were banned in the national capital in December last year following an unfortunate incident in a moving taxi registered with one of these companies.

For effective implementation of the ban, the Delhi government had written to the Centre in March this year for blocking the servers of App based taxi services.

These taxi operators have been informed by the transport department that their fresh applications for licencing will only be considered after they furnish affidavits agreeing to standard and stringent safety norms, particularly for women passengers.
