Govt warns unruly taxi operators with permit cancellation

Announcing that under no circumstances the app-based taxi service would be scrapped, the State government on Saturday warned to cancel permits of tourist taxis whose operators get involved in violence or misguide or instigate an agitation. As tourist taxi vehicles remained off the road for the second consecutive day on Saturday, Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant chaired a high-level meeting to take stock of the situation and decide the future course of action. Directions have been issued to Police, Transport Department and Kadamba Transport Corporation to make alternative arrangements to ferry visitors arriving the State.
The meeting, which was attended by Dy Chief Minister Manohar Ajgaonkar, Transport Minister Mauvin Godinho, Ports Minister Michael Lobo, Goa Tourism Development Corporation chairman Dayanand Sopte and representatives of industrial bodies like Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), Travel and Tourism Association of Goa (TTAG), Hotel Association, who were unanimous that an app-based taxi service is the need of the hour.
Speaking to media persons after the meeting, Sawant said it was called to oversee the preparation in the wake of the taxi strike. “All the industry bodies present for the meeting have supported our stand for app-based taxi service. They have said that the decision is correct,” he said.
