The AAP government has decided to again write to the Centre to block the apps of these two taxi aggregators and take strict action against them for not complying with the ban order.

The government on May 28 had directed Uber and Ola Cabs to submit details of their drivers and vehicles if they wanted to 'regularise' their services in the city, but according to the Minister, they have 'not turned up' so far.
    
"We will not issue licences to Uber and Ola Cabs to operate their taxis in the national capital unless they follow existing ban imposed by the government.

All app-based cab services were banned in the national capital after a driver of Uber, the US-based online cab service provider, was accused of raping a woman passenger in December last.

Uber has landed in another controversy with one of its drivers being accused of molesting a woman passenger on May 31 during a ride to Gurgaon.

The Delhi government in March had approached the Centre to block web-based apps of taxi operators Uber, Ola Cabs and TaxiForSure alleging that these companies were not complying with its ban order imposed on them.
    
The Transport Minister added these taxi aggregators have to take responsibility of safety of passengers travelling in their vehicles.
