Govt To Take Action Against Surge Pricing During Odd-Even

Urvee posted on 8th April

This comes as super-awesome news.  

The Delhi government has said that app-based taxi operators will be restrained from levying 'peak time charges' {otherwise known to us as the dreaded surge pricing} during the second round of the odd-even scheme, ie Apr 15 - 30.

Transport Minister, Gopal Rai has straight up said that, "action will be taken if we receive complaints of app-based taxis charging exorbitant fares when the scheme is in force." 

Taxis have been exempted under the road-rationing plan, so any commercial vehicle with yellow number plates, including CNG-run taxis, three-wheeler and four-wheeler tempos, autos and taxis will be allowed to run.

Commercial vehicles from other states that run on CNG have also been exempted from the road-rationing experiment.
