Karnataka’s transport authority has directed Uber and Ola to withdraw carpooling services with immediate effect. The state’s transport commissioner said “action will be taken” against the cab-aggregators if they continue to offer ridesharing since it wasn’t permissible under the law. The move came after a meeting with cab drivers, who raised concerns around low earnings, women’s safety and arguments among co-passengers. This isn’t the first time Karnataka is looking to ban carpooling – a previous attempt in 2017 saw stiff opposition from transport experts.
