Karnataka is all set to ban Uber Pool And Ola Share as the transport commissioner declared the service as illegal. According to the state laws, taxis can only pick one passenger at a time and drop them off at their destination.

The state transport commissioner said “the shared services violate Motor Vehicle Act and the Karnataka On-demand Transportation Technology Aggregators Rules, 2016. The cabs are permitted only to pick and drop the passengers to a particular point.”

Earlier it banned surge pricing in a move to protect consumers from rampant fares. Maharashtra welcome the moves as they feel that it helps bring down pollution level and traffic congestion.
