Delhi lifts ban on cab hailing app Uber

29 December, 2014

The Delhi transport department has modified the state Radio taxi scheme 2006 to bring the online car aggregators under the ambit of the scheme, paving the way for the likes of Uber to continue with its services in the state, says a The Economic Times report.

The state government had imposed a ban on mobile-based car hiring company Uber, following rape allegations against one of the drivers contracted to the firm early this month. The Delhi government had also asked all cab services running without licences to be off the road.

Following the incident, Uber had suspended its services in Delhi and tendered an apology.

Uber launched its operations in India in October last year and is currently present in 11 Indian cities that include Bangalore, Chandigarh, Chennai, Jaipur, Kochi, New Delhi, Pune, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Mumbai.
