Banning taxi service not a solution, says Gadkari

New Delhi: Banning Uber, an international taxi-booking service, does not make sense, said union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari Tuesday, adding that modern services like these should be encouraged and if there is some lacuna, it should be rectified.

"It doesn't make sense to ban services. Tomorrow, if something happens on a bus, we can't ban that. Similarly, if something of this sort happens on a plane, that too cannot be banned," the minister told reporters here.

"Modern concepts like these are being implemented in countries like the UK, the US and others, and we too must encourage it," Gadkari said on being asked whether these application-based services should be banned in the country.

"It's up to the state governments since it comes under their subject list, but services like these are useful and if there is any problem or lacuna that can be fixed," he said.

The minister said that the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, would also be changed.

"We will have a centre where record of all drivers would be maintained," he said.
