Telangana, Andhra ban Uber
Authorities in both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh have banned cab service provider Uber.
Hyderabad: Authorities in both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh have banned cab service provider Uber.
The transport departments in both the states said Uber has no permission to operate and advised people to refrain from hiring the app-based cab service.
In Hyderabad and neighbouring Ranga Reddy district, special teams of Road Transport Authority (RTA) and police Wednesday launched a crackdown on Uber and other service operating illegally.
The officials seized several cabs in Hyderabad and Cyberabad police commissionerates for unauthorized operations.
The action came in the wake of the ban on Uber in Delhi after a cab driver from the firm raped a 26-year-old executive in the vehicle.
An official of the transport department in Telangana said the ban would also be imposed on any other firm like Uber.
"Uber is only a web based organisation. We will not allow those cab operators who have no licenses and who are not registered with us," the official said.
