US based online taxi booking company Uber, has been asked to stop operation immediately in Thailand, just after it was banned in Delhi.
The taxi service company was asked to stop the service because of using cars improperly and employing drivers who were not registered.
Director General of Department of Land Transport Thiraphong Rodprasert has asked Uber to stop operations immediately.
Uber, which bills itself as an on-demand taxi provider, offers the premium Uber Black limousine-like service and Uber X service, that costs less and compete directly with taxis in Bangkok and Phuket.
The cars are being used improperly, using green lettered plates like airport limousines and black lettered plates for private vehicles.
Uber was also operating illegally by not charging customers the rates approved in Thailand. Further, drivers were not carrying public-transport drivers licences.
The taxi company uses smartphone applications to book rides, the app doubles up as a matchmaker between owners of private vehicles and passengers, which has its own fare structure.
Thiraphong told that private black plate vehicles are not allowed to operate as taxis because the drivers are not registered for public transport.
The transport department of Thailand has shown its concern for the credit card paying method only system due to security reasons.
The department has also said that Uber drivers, if caught driving wrong vehicles, not charging approved fares or drivers without a public-vehicle driver's license, will be fined by the police.
