Delhi government banned Uber taxi services

Dec 10, 2014 13:13 IST

The US-based Uber taxi service was in news on 8 December 2014 as Delhi Government banned its services in the national capital. The company was blacklisted from providing any transport service in the NCT (National Capital Territory) in future.

The services of the company were banned after a 27-year-old MNC executive, who used its mobile app to book a cab on 5 December 2014, was raped allegedly by the driver, Shiv Kumar Yadav. The driver has been sent to three-day police custody.

Further, Uber was carrying out its business in contravention of the Motor Vehicle (MV) Act, 1988 and rules framed there under.

Apart from Delhi, Telangana also banned the services of San Francisco-based taxi services after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh advised all states and Union territories to stop the operation of web-based taxi services.
