In a not so shocking move yesterday, the Delhi Government has asked the IT Ministry to ban the App can services viz. Ola and Uber. The move won't be a surprise as the Delhi Government has been quite adamant on not allowing Uber to continue its operations in NCR following the ghastly rape incident. Last December, the Government had asked all unregistered cab services to be halted until they obtained a valid license. But, the ban was not effective as taxi companies had continued to operate in Delhi while their license applications are still pending. The authorities have asked both the cab agencies to stop the operations immediately if they want the applications to be processed. A spokesperson for Delhi Government claims that blocking the services is the only way they can effectively ban them. Back in February, Uber and Ola launched a SoS panic button following protests for the safety of its passengers. An Ola spokesperson stated that they are working with the state authorities regarding the license but have not received any additional notice from the government. “We have proactively gone over and beyond the set requirements in terms of customer safety measures across the country,” the Ola statement said. A Uber spokesperson declined to comment.
