Delhi HC notice to AAP government on Ola, Uber taxi fares

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 18 April 2016, 15:27 IST

The Delhi High Court has issued a notice to the Delhi government, asking them to file an immediate reply on the steps taken to stop taxi-aggregators like Ola and Uber from charging fares arbitrarily. The apex court is scheduled to hear the matter on 25 April.

The notice comes on the heels of a petition filed by radio cab company Magic Sewa Private Limited, alleging that certain app-based cab companies like Ola and Uber do not comply to the fares under the Motor Vehicles Act.

On 18 April, the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh called off the auto and taxi strike in the capital demanding action against the illegal operation of the app-based services. 

They claimed that "unlawful practices" of unlicensed taxi aggregators were adversely affecting the livelihood of the auto rickshaws drivers.

Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter to say that action would be taken against the defaulters.
