New scheme in the pipeline to check surge pricing in cabs

New Delhi: A city taxi scheme being prepared by the Delhi government may include fixing fare metres to cabs operated through aggregator services to prevent surge pricing, an official said.
A government committee formed by the government to shape up the scheme has been working on compiling various suggestions, including one for installing fare metres with cab aggregator vehicles, and they are expected to be presented in the public domain soon, said the official.
The metres will disclose to the passengers whether they have been charged more than the maximum fare. The government is learnt to be against surge pricing -- a demand based fare system.
