A draught aggregator scheme has been released in the national capital Delhi to check the arbitrariness of app-based taxi operators like Ola and Uber. Those who offer online taxi, motorcycle, or three-wheeler services will be required to obtain a licence from the app and maintain a fleet of more than 50 vehicles.
They will be required to establish operating centres on a local level under the scheme. They’ll have to modify their app to comply with Indian law, as well as operate 24-hour help centres where their vehicles are tracked. In the event of an emergency, the consumer and the driver can receive assistance by calling in Hindi or English. This programme is currently being implemented in Delhi.
In Delhi, there are about 2 lakh Ola and Uber drivers.
Delhi is one of the top ten global markets for app-based aggregator services like Uber and Ola. Due to the fact that Ola and Uber have around 2 lakh drivers in Delhi, this plan is posing a significant challenge for these aggregators. The draught plan has been made public by the Transportation Department, and all parties involved have until February 18 to submit their comments or objections. Aggregators who provide app-based services via two-wheelers, three-wheelers, or cars will be required to obtain a licence after the scheme is implemented. Buses are not included in this plan.
If a vehicle’s licence is not obtained, a fine of Rs.25,000 is imposed per vehicle.
Those who do not adhere to the plan face stiff penalties. If the aggregator does not obtain a licence within three months of the guidelines being issued, a fine of Rs 25,000 per vehicle will be imposed.
If the licence is not obtained after 100 days have passed since the notification was issued, a fine of Rs 500 per vehicle per day will be imposed.
The fleet of vehicles will be converted to electric vehicles according to a roadmap. Within six months of obtaining a licence, 10% of two-wheelers and three-wheelers must be converted to electric vehicles, 25% within one year, and 50% within two years.
The goal for the fleet of cars is to convert 5% of them to electric vehicles in six months, 15% in a year, and 25% in two years. A fine of Rs 1000 per vehicle per day will be imposed if you do not comply.
These guidelines must be followed.
They should establish a 24-hour operating centre, control centre, or information centre in Delhi. Every vehicle should be monitored in this process.
From the point where the vehicle was first used to the point where it arrived at its destination, as well as a complete record of the route and the status of the panic button.
Customers should be able to contact the app at any time through call centres and valid phone numbers.
How to switch to electric because there aren’t enough chargers: Uber
According to Bhaskar, an Uber spokesperson stated, “We will give our opinion on the aggregator scheme to the government.” In terms of the state of electric vehicles, I believe that a comprehensive environment will be required. If there aren’t enough chargers, the goal should be completed under logical conditions.
What will be the cost: There will be no cost for a vehicle licence.
