Ola Ban In Delhi

The license application of Ola Cabs to run its taxi service in Delhi has been once again rejected by the Delhi Government.

Around a month back, the transport department was directed by the Delhi High court to reconsider the license application of Ola Cabs, but it was rejected for not filing undertakings stating they were complying with a government’s ban imposed on it and other laid-down rules.

A senior government official said that the cab service needed to follow rules like installation of digital fare meters, operation through government-approved fare structure, GPS and PSV badge before the services resumed.

“The Transport department has asked the company that if it wants to apply afresh for getting license, it can again apply under newly-introduced ‘City Taxi Scheme’ 2015. Government will only entertain Ola’s fresh application under new taxi scheme if it submits the certified copy of undertaking to be deposited in the High Court along with its application,” said the Government official.
