Delhi Transport Department on Wednesday rejected Uber's request for licence in the city. The sources within the department said that incorporation of company does not include the mandated to provide public transport services.
US online taxi-hailing service Uber had applied for a radio taxi licence to restart operations in India's capital, after it was banned following allegations that one of its drivers raped a female passenger.
Uber had promised to improve passenger safety by introducing additional safety measures including more stringent driver checks, an in-app emergency button and a dedicated incident response team.
But even with all the so called improvements, Delhi Transport Department decided that Uber were not fit and proper to hold a Radio Taxi Licence.
