After Ola, Uber has now applied for a licence to the Karnataka State Transport Department so as to operate under the new rules set by the State Government for the app-based taxi aggregators.
Operating under a licence would mean, Uber will operate as a local player and cap its prices.
The cab aggregator had earlier appealed against the new rules of Karnataka On-demand Transportation Technology Aggregator Rules 2016 which was announced in April. The case is still pending in the Karnataka high court.
Though Uber’s arguments of being a technology player and does not require regulation was heard by Karnataka High Court judge Aravind Kumar last week, he mandated that the company submit all necessary documents to the transport department before June 20.
The next hearing will be on June 20th.
