Share via:


The Karnataka government has ordered ride-hailing apps Ola, Uber, and Rapido to stop operating in Bengaluru for overcharging customers within three days.

According to media reports, the state’s transportation department issued a notice to the companies after receiving complaints about them overcharging customers for autorickshaw rides. The transport department referred to complaints against the aggregators for charging a minimum of INR 100 for auto rides of less than 2 kilometres in the notice issued to Uber, Ola parent ANI Technologies, and Rapido, calling it a “illegal practise.” The government also requested that these businesses submit a compliance report. If the apps do not comply with the order, they may face legal action.
