Following the recent gang rape incident in Bengaluru wherein a Rapido Taxi driver was allegedly involved, the city police commissioner has ordered app-based cab aggregators to collect at least two photo identity documents of their staff.

In a meeting held Friday, City police commissioner CH Pratap Reddy asked app aggregators running cabs, bike taxis, and courier service providers including food delivery agencies to promote the Emergency Response Support System (ERSS), among other security measures.

Aggregators should conduct traffic awareness drives in association with the traffic police as most delivery agents are found violating traffic rules, police said. (Express)

Here are the guidelines issued by the Bengaluru city police:

· Do proper background verification of employees and collect at least two photo identity documents (address proof). Also, collect papers pertaining to vehicles being used.
