Chandigarh State Transport Authority (STA) has authorised only three radio taxi operators to operate in Chandigarh.
The authorities, taking the Delhi incident into deep consideration, have authorised only three companies to ply on Chandigarh roads.
The three authorised radio taxi operators are:
- Mega Cabs
- Fab Cabs
Only these three brands have been authorised to operate as per 2006 Radio Taxi Scheme of the Chandigarh Administration.
Stash Jain, STA Secretary said that among multiple operators offering services, only three are authorised and the rest are unauthorised.
He said, "We will take action against them as these taxi operators do not conform to Radio Taxi scheme of UT Chandigarh Administration."
Among other taxi service providers, many radio taxi services that run with the help of mobile applications are running their business and cars under the "All India Permit System", claim STA officials.
This step taken towards making taxi operators strict came after the incident in Delhi where a woman executive was allegedly raped by a driver working for Uber Cabs.
