The Delhi transport authority which earlier asked unregistered taxi services to stop operations after Uber rape incident has rejected the applications of both Uber and Ola.Uber-Ola

“We will not issue licences to Uber and Ola Cabs to operate their taxis in the capital unless they follow existing ban imposed by the city’s government.

They have been asked to first give an undertaking in this regard, but they are avoiding.” [Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai]

Earlier the state government asked ISPs to block the taxi apps, but ISPs failed to do so citing encryption issues.

“We are working on a special plan to take action against banned taxi services in the capital. Several teams will be formed to seize the taxis of such companies,” mentions, the transport minister.

To add to this, Uber is again in a controversy as one of its driver has been accused of molesting a woman passenger.
