The Delhi authorities on Tuesday mentioned it can ask bike-taxi aggregators to cease operations within the nationwide capital until a coverage is notified, a day after the Supreme Court stayed a High Court order that had allowed them to ply.

Transport Commissioner Ashish Kundra mentioned the federal government will write to aggregators and likewise enchantment to them by the media to adjust to the apex courtroom order or face motion. The Supreme Court on Monday stayed the High Court order that allowed bike-taxi aggregators Rapido and Uber to function within the nationwide capital. The SC’s ruling is binding on all, Kundra mentioned.

“The submission of the department in the court was that we have already floated a draft scheme and the scheme is going to be finalised soon. In absence of any scheme and regulatory framework, the companies are overstepping their mandate by offering such services in absence of any permits or registration from the Transport Department,” he instructed PTI.

Kundra mentioned the businesses are free to give their feedback on the proposed coverage on bike-taxi aggregators, and the federal government will take a decision after taking a complete view of varied points. “Those issues have to be incorporated while finalising the policy. We will be writing to them. These are responsible companies and they should advise their driver partners to desist from operations till they have due authorisation and registration. It is unfortunate that in continuing such operations, they are jeopardising the economic prospects of such people who are associated with them unknowingly in an activity not permissible by law,” he mentioned.

Earlier in February, the transport division had cautioned bike-taxis in opposition to plying on the roads of Delhi, warning that it was a violation of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, that may make aggregators responsible for a high-quality of Rs 1 lakh.
