Meanwhile, according to a survey conducted by LocalCircles found, nearly 64 percent Indians think that it’s a big issue and must be solved. Even though a large number of people voted in favour of using app-based taxis such as Ola and Uber for convenience, they also said that surge pricing, especially during peak hours, was a problem.
The survey showed that of the other major issues being faced by commuters include wait time and behaviour of drivers.
In the survey, which received over 47,000 responses from 200 cities, 74 percent of the respondents said that duopoly has been created and that they do not see the problem of surge pricing being fixed any time soon.
“…Although the app taxi services have brought a lot of convenience to the lives of the citizens, the government will have to take strong steps to control surge pricing mechanism and ensure sustainability of the services,” LocalCircles survey said.
