Punjab and Sindh Government Seek Legal Action Against Uber and Careem
In a statement, Secretary Transport said that he wrote five letters to Careem management as a warning but received no response from their behalf.
The provincial government has also initiated legal action against Uber. According to the Secretary Transport, private cars need to be made commercial in order to be used as taxis and owners would require fitness certificated for the cars used.
In a notification issued by the Punjab Transport Authority earlier, it said that as the aforementioned companies are ‘illegally’ using private cars for services and this is affecting the provincial government adversely as it is facing huge financial losses. The notification further added that cars are being used as taxis without the mandatory certificates.
