Giving relief to two cab companies affiliated with Ola and TaxiForSure, the Delhi High Court on Thursday set aside the Delhi government’s order issued on June 3 which had rejected their applications for fresh licences to operate radio cabs in the city.
The court also said the challans and impounding by the Transport department were invalid. Apra Cabs, which runs taxis under the Ola brand, and Serendipity Info Labs, which runs under TaxiForSure, had approached the court earlier this week against the rejection of their applications.
Senior advocate DS Narula and advocate Khalid Arshad told the court that the companies had filed applications for grant of licence but the government had rejected them. The court has directed the Transport department to issue fresh showcause notices to the companies.
