Karnataka lifts '6-month' ban on Ola… in 2 days

New Delhi: The Karnataka government Sunday allowed cab aggregator Ola to resume its service which was suspended two days back for running bike taxis without permission.

The Karnataka transport department had on Friday suspended the licence of taxi aggregator Ola for six months, saying it was running bike taxis without permission.

"As Ani Technologies Pvt Ltd (Ola Cabs), Bangalore, has violated the Karnataka On-demand Transport Technology Aggregators Rules, 2016, and in the backdrop of the report submitted by the Deputy Transport Commissioner and senior Regional Transport Officer, Bangalore (South), the aggregator licence issued to it till June 19, 2021 has been suspended for 6 months under the rules," the order had said.

Matrix Partners India, an investor in Ola Cabs, appreciated quick resolution of the issue.

"This speed of resolution is much appreciated and augurs well for the new India! Great to see younger ministers shedding the ways of the older ones and promoting speed and innovation," Matrix Partners India Founder and Managing Director Avnish Bajaj said.
