Govt to revise policy on cab aggregators
The Indian government has proposed to consult stakeholders before finalizing a policy to regulate ride-hailing companies such as Ola and Uber. It may revise some of the guidelines for the companies which they proposed last year. The transport ministry is planning to have consultations with stakeholders for a few new guidelines.
The ministry is also considering setting a timeline in terms of the total hours allowed or rides for surge pricing apart from instituting a robust dispute redressal system with a helpline number.
Though now the ride-hailing firms take about 20% commission on every ride, the government wants cab drivers to get 90% of the fare from each ride and the remaining 10% for the ride-hailing firms as per the proposal. It may also mandate a face-recognition system for verification of drivers.
The proposed guidelines are reported to address the issues of passenger security, types of vehicles allowed and liability responsibility as provided in the new motor vehicles act.
