LocalCircles Impact: Govt brings new rules for taxi aggregators

Many of you enthusiastically participated in the LocalCircles survey last year on app taxis like Uber, Ola, etc. to share issues faced and areas where action from Government is needed.

One of the top issues raised by the circle was the frequent cancellation by drivers and the need for a penalty in case the driver or the app cancels the ride along with a reasonable cap on surge pricing. Today, we are pleased to share with you that based on LocalCircles survey and constant follow ups, the Government has announced new rules for taxi aggregators. Below is the link to our survey and attached are the rules.

The app should be user friendly and in case of any problem from the service provider, it should be informed to the customer. more  
Avinandan to all active citizens. It is possible to do many welfare actions like this if we work and think together in a focus way. more  
Glad to know about the framing of new rules. It should be published to reach all the public to make them aware of it more  
Kudos to the efforts of Local Circles. more  
The guidelines and the innumerable proofs submitted my consumers establish that Uber, Ola etc were actually looting the customers. Now GOI must penalize heavily above service providers to set an example hardly seen nowadays. more
