What happened over the weekend in New Delhi is horrific. Our entire team’s hearts go out to the victim of this despicable crime. We will do everything, I repeat, everything to help bring this perpetrator to justice and to support the victim and her family in her recovery.
We will work with the government to establish clear background checks currently absent in their commercial transportation licensing programs. We will also partner closely with the groups who are leading the way on women’s safety here in New Delhi and around the country and invest in technology advances to help make New Delhi a safer city for women.
Had they woken up timely and undertaken action properly rather than getting into the race of getting more taxis on road would have had ensured that no such incident against the women would have had happened.
Delhi govt has done rightly by banning them but the reaction by Delhi govt is a knee jerk reaction and they should have had taken action before such an instance had happened or were they in league with Uber officials. Read the statement below by Satish Mathur, Special Commissioner of Delhi Transport Department.
“The services of Uber have been blacklisted. We have just issued an order saying Uber’s activities stand banned in Delhi,” While Uber came into the spotlight because of the criminal incident, the ban itself is because of flouting permit laws. According to Mathur, Uber has been flouting rules by offering its riders taxis with All-India permits, which legally cannot ply point-to-point within Delhi.
