Earlier this week, the Karnataka government had issued a notice to suspend Ola’s license for six months for violating government rules by running motorcycle taxis which are not allowed for safety reasons.
Two days after Karnataka Transport Department revoked the license of Ola, Priyank Kharge, the social welfare minister in the state, tweeted that app-based cab aggregator will run their business as usual from today.
“Ola cabs will run their business as usual from today. However, there is an urgent need for policies to catch up with new technologies & also industries too should work closer with Govt to help evolve policies for innovations,” Priyank Kharge tweeted on Sunday.
Responding to a user complaint about the state-wide ban on the Ola cabs, the Minister said that the decision to resolve the issue was made after a meeting with Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy and his deputy G Parameshwara.
