The High Court in Delhi has asked Delhi government to file a reply on steps taken by Govt to stop Ola & Uber from charging fares arbitrarily during the odd-even phase.
The Aam Admi Party-led Delhi government has said that it will take stern actions against Uber and Ola for causing hardship to commuters and charging exorbitant prices during the ongoing odd-even scheme in the state.
“The government is serious about preventing arbitrariness by app-based taxi services and is ready to take strict action against them, Ola and Uber will have to follow rules. If we receive complaints against the arbitrariness of any app-based taxi service, we will impound their vehicles,” said Gopal Rai, Delhi Transport Minister.
Delhi High Court is likely to hear the matter on April 25.

Price surging by taxi-aggregators has raised alarms in several states. Karnataka government had recently issued notices to aggregators and had even impounded several vehicles in the state. Maharashtra too adopted the similar policy.
