Karnataka revokes ban on Ola cab service in Bengaluru


The Karnataka government has revoked the six-month ban its Transport Department slapped on cab ride hailing firm Ola on Friday, state Social Welfare Minister Priyank Kharge said on Sunday.

"Olacabs 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," Kharge said in a tweet.

The license to operate four-wheeler vehicles of the city-based online cab aggregator was suspended for six months on March 22 for running bike service in the city on it.

The ban order was issued to Ola operator ANI Technologies Ltd for violating the Karnataka On-Demand Transportation Technology Aggregators Rules, 2016.

The Transport Department had impounded several of Ola's bike taxis over the last few months, the order said.

Terming the order "unfortunate", Ola said on Friday that it was evaluating all options to find a solution so that its driver-partners could continue to work in the city.
