India to Block Uber, Ola and Other Taxi Services

India to Block Uber, Ola and Other Taxi Services

India’s Department of Telecom (DoT) asked Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to block the URLs of Uber, Olacabs, TaxiForSure and Angel.

The authorities said that these companies were not operating legally as they were running cab operations without the necessary licences. Commenting on this issue, Rajesh Chharia, President, Internet Service Providers Association of India (ISPAI) said, “We can only block http websites and not the https. We have contacted to the telecom department that sites with high encryption codes cannot be blocked by us.” Since, the Uber and Ola are https sites; therefore, they could not be blocked. However, TaxiForSure website has been blocked in Delhi with immediate effect.

Earlier, all app-based taxi services were banned in New Delhi after a driver of Uber was allegedly accused of raping a female passenger. As Uber continues its quest for global ride-hailing domination, India is crucial to win. The country is Uber’s largest market outside of the United States in terms of cities covered and has a radio taxi market worth an estimated $6 billion to $9 billion


Some argued that if the ISPs cannot filter these web-based applications, then the government should go the other way around. It should block IP Addresses of PC and devices from accessing these applications. For instance, an Uber user in Delhi should be denied permission to its website and mobile application.

When taxi app sites like Uber and other were restricted in the India, some savvy users started using VPN services to evade the blocks on the original websites. VPN services replace original IP address of the user by IP address located in another country. It allows overcoming geo-restrictions and using Uber and other taxi apps without being catched.

robbow123 avatarYou are right. Using the alleged rape allegation is a bad reason to justify stopping Uber.

I have a car but don't like seeing criminals prosper

Uber is a criminal organization. It's user's like it, the same way people like other criminal things. It's cheaper for one thing. Cheaper because it doesn't comply with the law and doesn't pay for adequate insurance.
Though if someone tries to rape yoy on a bus or train. There will be other people around who hopefully would stop it. Also a rapist wouldn't try on a train or bus because of the people. While Uber drivers in other countries have had assault allegations against them. In Quebec their offices were raided to seize documents because of Tax Evasion. Uber has more support in the US because it can give lots of money to politicians.

No avatarBan all politicians in India and everything will do just fine. Bunch of morons. Few weeks back DOT released email id's and messages of everyone who sent mails to them in favour of net neutrality. Idiots and corrupted they all are.

robbow123 avatarThanks Frosty, While I doubt there are serial killers driving Uber. The companies claims of doing background checks has to be taken in the same context as there defying the laws in the countries they operate in.
In South Korea The President of Uber was convicted (I don't think he showed up in court)of operating an illegal Taxi company.

But as for letting my daughter. I look at it differently. I don't care whether I am related to them or even if I ever met them. I don't want anyone to get a car with a serial killer.

I do know that in North America the Taxi industry needs reforms and should use a similar app as Uber. They have been complacent. But that does not excuse criminal activity. It's similar to having your house built by an illegal, unlicensed contractor. It's cheaper but there is no guarantee your house won't fall apart in a year.

xartan avatarWell, Ola taxi, Uber Taxi etc can be easily banned?? then what about Faketaxi? :o

TrueHD avatarI don't think that rape is the only reason to stop them. All this kind of providers are not follow the Indian rules. Not only India Uber is already banned on most of the countries in this world.

No avatarWake up people this is about ones freedoms not any thing else, freedom to choose what company I want to travel with , a taxi company or Uber its MY choice/ and if there is a serial/rapist etc than the death penalty must apply , penalty must be swift and painful. Freedom is the issue here nothing else. Go Uber Go free enterprise .
