A Day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal warned radio-taxi services in Delhi against surge pricing during the implementation of the second phase of odd-even scheme, 18 Ola and Uber cabs were impounded for overcharging.
Ola and Uber had stopped surge pricing after Delhi CM warned of strict action against taxis which charge more than the government prescribed rates.
“Given the threat to the livelihood of our partners, at the expense of reliability, we are temporarily suspending surge with immediate effect,” Uber had said in a statement following the warning.
After Uber, Ola too had suspended surge princing in the national capital.
Meanwhile, Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai made an appeal to the commuters to register complaints against taxi-services charging exorbitant fares.
