Driving into the lane of Uber and Ola, with its ride hailing cab service, Rapido will start with 0 per cent commission, transitioning to subscriptions, which it hopes will help it garner higher customer loyalty

He replaces Nelson Chai, who stepped down from the role in August after a five-year stint with the ride-hailing app

Earlier last week, Uber announced its services in Goa, including airport pick-up and drop

The Delhi government had earlier in the week banned app-based taxi services such as Rapido and Uber in view of absence of a policy for plying bike taxis on city roads

The High Court, in its May 26 order, had essentially allowed bike-taxi aggregators Rapido and Uber to operate in the national capital by asking the Delhi government not to take any coercive action against them until a new policy on the matter was formulated

The company would provide the service at a fixed price with zero cancellation charges and no surge pricing

Uber sees the aviation sector as a key growth driver for its business in India, with airport trips accounting for a significant portion of its revenue

The food delivery platforms have also sought clarification from the government on the directive while claiming that there has been a misinterpretation of the notice as the ban is applicable to bike taxi service providers

Uber said it is ready to commit to the same phased electrification mandates including full fleet electrification timelines as suggested for delivery companies
