The Ola Uber Clash Leads The Online Ride Hailing Services To The Court
The Ola Uber clash is nothing new. The two app-based taxi hailing services are always at loggerheads over business in the ride sharing market. But this time, things seemed to have worsened between the two as Ola received license from the Karnataka government to operate under the new set of regulations which mandates the presence of physical meters that can print receipts, taxi signs, proper licenses, complaint registers and panic buttons in every car of the cab aggregators. Ola submitted 100 cars in compliance with the new laws thereby granting itself the license to operate in the state while Uber is still in queue. This fact has enraged the latter which has submitted petition to the court requesting the transport division to make amendments to the laws so that they could comply with them.
Ola took this chance to quip that Uber, just like other foreign companies, is attempting to violate the laws of the country in which they are operating. Its petition to make amendments to the transport laws is a clear evidence of the fact. Furthermore, they also mentioned themselves as a law abiding business while taking on Uber as a foreign company which has no respect for local laws. Uber did not leave the chance to explain its virtues by saying that it has always followed Indian laws, in spite of being a so-called foreign company. In fact, it even denied the tag “foreign” set on it by the Ola team. So, how is this Ola Uber clash going to affect the common people in Bangalore, the IT hub of India, where cabs are always needed and ride hailing services can perform their best? Let’s delve deeper into the matter to analyze the situation in Karnataka.
How will the common people be affected by the Ola Uber clash?
Uber is a beloved of many riders because of its inherent cost-effectiveness and ready availability. People are going to suffer a great deal if Uber does not make it to the roads in Karnataka. You can almost always get an Uber cab in times of emergencies whereas Ola’s unavailability is the cause of concern for many. Ola gives you a profitable business all right, but from the customer’s perspective Uber is preferable. Hence, if Uber does not make it in Karnataka, many people are going to find it really depressing. Can you imagine yourself not getting an Uber cab when you need to go to the airport to catch a flight? Horrible, isn’t it? Imagine all the stress you have to go through, affected by this dreadful Ola Uber clash, in booking an ordinary cab at the peak hour.
We can all hope for the best at this point of time and pray for the clash of the Titans to settle down so that we can enjoy unperturbed services. But it looks like this nasty Ola Uber clash is not going to be over any time soon! However, as it is that Ola has made it to the roads, we can assume it’s services will get better with the new set of regulations set down by the Karnataka Transport Department. What do you have to say in the matter? Let us know what you think so that we can have a detailed discussion on the issue. Have a great day!
