In a verbal allegation, the Delhi Government has informed the Delhi High Court that app-based radio taxis run by Ola and Uber are overcharging their customers.

The allegation was presented to Justice Manmohan, who has asked the government to file an affidavit regarding the same.

According to the Delhi Government, Ola and Uber have been over-pricing their cab services. The actual distance covered is not displayed on the receipt.

The amount charged is much higher than the stipulated charge for the given distance, by three or four times.

During the brief hearing, the Association of Radio Taxis has also informed the court of the failure of these app-based cabs to comply with the phasing out of diesel cabs as ordered.

Ola and Uber representatives have denied the allegations made so far. The date for the hearing has been set for March 15, 2016.

In my view, overcharging is exactly What Uber and Ola don’t do which has lead to increase in their popularity (with the exception of Surge Pricing which is rare, atleast for me). For me, getting an AC cab right outside my door at rates cheaper than even Autowallas at any time of the day is the Best thing that could happen to taxis. Even when travelling to other cities, these App based cabs have ensured that we don’t get ripped off by the Local Taxi or Auto Guy.

I dont know about the situation in other countries but in India, I believe that Uber and Ola are the Best thing that has happened to these looting Taxi and Auto operator industry whose main aim was and is still to loot customers. The taxi and Auto industry should instead regulate itself (in fares and service) and compete with these services instead of lobbying the government to shut these down.

Right, but I believe on Top of the List should be Lays and Cadbury Chocolates. We are sold a packet of Potato chips costing at max Rs 5-6 including packaging at an exorbitant price of Rs 20. Somewhat similar is the case with Chocolates.

Association of Radio Taxis( Read Meru, Easycabs etc) has been trying their best to curtail competition from Ola, Uber. I think this is the third time they are pulling Uber, Ola to court. First time, it was related to some new Delhi specific radio taxi guidelines which was set aside by the courts when Uber/Ola proved that they are just aggregates and they cannot be called as radio taxis.

High court has already set March 31st as deadline to convert all Uber, Ola cabs to CNG in Delhi/NCR. If Uber/Ola fails to implement courts recommendation. most likely court will ban them.

Coming back to overcharging, i believe complaint must be regarding surge pricing since no other radio taxi providers in Delhi has a concept of surge pricing.

Although it would be nice to control the prices of KFC etc, but we should never let Government interfere with businesses. It will always end up in a bigger problem. TN government has capped the prices of movie tickets at 120rs. Even PVR is forced to sell tickets at 120 rupees in Chennai . As a result of the cap there are just 2 PVR’s in Chennai( least for a metro). Inox has refused to even enter Chennai market till the capping is removed.

Tomorrow if Government decides to cap KFC chicken bucket at 100 bucks, do you think KFC will stay in India? They will simply shut down the stores and move on.

Govt can regulate sector… Like telecom, Entertainment, etc.. Why not cabs. They are after all licensed..

TN govt has capped max rate for cinema as 120 not only PVR… same way radio cabs can be capped like max 20 Rs per KM like autos in all cities… For public good.. Why that would be a cause of concern..

This is not targeting pvt concern.. We all know what will happend when they are let loose

Government has not regulated telecom fares. Telcos are free to charge as much as they deem fit. Telecom charges are lowest in India due to competition. It has nothing to do with Government regulation.

I don’t mind if the prices of radio taxis are capped but government should also guarantee that it should be implemented in a fair way. Auto fares are decided by the Government in many states Including TN, Kerala etc but how many autos will ply by the meter?

Coming to Uber/ Ola, their prices are already much lower than other private providers such as Meru.

Government have actually capped charges during 2G spectrum auction.. Famous 2G scam and everything… And we did enjoyed 10p/m scheme from all telecom for a brief period..

Still Govt is controlling Roaming charges and in fact trying to remove it altogether but Pvt players are resisting and BSNL become scape goat as it is one of revenue centre for Pvt players..

I agree Uber/Ola are charging less now to get customers on board, but they aren’t such low… they charge every minute 1/2 Rs for what… This is not waiting charges.. These are the things that govt should regulate…
Considering all there charges their avg cost per Km comes around 14-15 Rs…
