Delhi government in a decision has decided to ban bike taxi services provided by Ola, Rapidpo, and Uber.
The Delhi transport department says that two-wheelers having non-transport (private) registration marks/numbers are being used to carry passengers
The reason given by the government notice was that using personal vehicles as commercial taxis violates Motor Vehicle Act, 1988.
The step was taken after the Supreme Court banned Rapido services in Maharashtra.
The reason behind the ban was that the two-wheeler cab services have no proper arrangements for an emergency button.
According to the notice, the department clearly states that the ban on bike taxis will come into effect immediately.
If service providers continue to provide bike taxi service in Delhi, then a fine of Rs 5,000 will be charged.
If the offense is committed the second time or subsequently, then a fine of Rs 10,000 will be charged as well as imprisonment.
Kailash Gahlot tweeted, "Aggregator policy for 2W, 3W & 4W is in its final stage & will be rolled out soon helping them to apply for a grant of license under the new scheme."
