Ola says suspension of license 'unfortunate'

Business/  News Measurements Network

Ola Cabs on Friday termed the suspension of its licence in Karnataka `unfortunate` while reaffirming that the company is "evaluating all options to find an amicable solution" for its driver-partners in Karnataka to continue working.
"We have been closely working with the authorities on this topic, responding to queries and making proactive representations to the ministry. Despite other companies continuing to operate illegally, Ola halted our bike taxi experiment weeks ago, instead of seeking the state`s cooperation to develop a legal framework for a pilot that will continue to take advantage of emerging opportunities in the mobility economy," the company said in a statement.
"This notification is unfortunate, and we look forward to an opportunity to address these concerns directly with state officials to find a solution for our driver-partners and millions of Ola users in Karnataka," it added.
Ola Cabs' aggregator licence was suspended for a period of six months by the Karnataka government`s transport department, starting March 18. The transport aggregator has been charged with running bike taxis in violation of licence conditions and rules prescribed by the government.
The Karnataka government noted that Ola`s response to a probe it carried out regarding an illegal operation of bike taxis was not satisfactory, thus forcing it to serve a notice to the app-based cab aggregator.
