The Delhi Government has rejected US-based ride hailing company Uber’s application for registration under the modified Radio Taxi Scheme 2006.
Applications of India-based rivals Ola and TaxiForSure were also rejected on the same grounds by the Delhi Government’s transport department.
The news follows yet another case of a woman allegedly being molested by an Uber driver in Delhi.
The applications of all three cab aggregators were rejected due to their failure to declare that they were complying with a Home Ministry-imposed ban on their services last year.
The ban was imposed after the Uber rape case prompting the government to step up its demand that taxi aggregators employ better safety measures.
