The Delhi Government on Wednesday rejected fresh applications for licenses by app based taxi services Uber, Ola and TaxiForSure.
“We’ve rejected applications for license given by Uber, Ola and Taxi for Sure. First of all they will have to follow the order of ban. They don’t even have an office in Delhi. Uber said that they have around 18,000 registered people. If they don’t follow the ban, we will be writing a letter to the Central Government,” Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai said.
The move comes after a 21-year-old woman had accused a driver of the Uber taxi service of attempting to kiss her after she got off at her destination in Gurgaon.
In December 2014, a 27-year-old finance executive of a Gurgaon-based company had alleged that the driver of an Uber cab drove her to a deserted place after she fell asleep in the vehicle and raped her.
