Karnataka has banned taxi hailing device Ola cabs for six months for violating government rules by running motorcycle taxi.
“Despite repeated warnings, Ola was misusing the license granted by the authorities. Bike taxis are not allowed in Karnataka according to government policy,” a senior official with the state’s transport department said on condition of anonymity.
Company said that it was evaluating all options to find an amicable solution and that it has been closely working with the authorities. “Despite other companies continuing to operate illegally, we halted our bike taxi experiment weeks ago,” Ola said.
