There can’t be blanket ban: HC on Uber ops
The Delhi high court on Wednesday set aside the state government's order, rejecting an application of the US-based Uber taxi service for a licence to ply in the national Capital. Justice Manmohan also asked the government to decide the application within 10 days and inform the company about the requirements that need to be met.
The court also told the Delhi Transport Department to impose conditions on Uber in accordance with the law, if it was inclined to grant licence to the company and ask the firm that it will have to comply with the laid-down condition. "There cannot be a blanket ban... you (Delhi government) can impose some conditions which they have to fulfill," the court said.
Meanwhile, the government has taken a note of an alleged obscene act by a driver in a moving cab booked through Taxi4Sure App based service. It will respond to the HC’s order on App-based taxi services after studying the details of the order.
