As per Karnataka Government rule Ola bike taxis are not allowed in the state. Despite this the Ola taxi-hailing service violated this rule resulting in suspension of their license for a duration of six months.
However many of the users reported that they were still able to book a taxi through the Ola app. Ola has a tenure from June 2016 to June 19, 2021, in the state.
The company even made a statement saying that they stopped their bike taxi experiment weeks ago unlike other companies who were still operating them illegally.
Ola has made an investment of a whopping $100 million in Vogo that provides such services in Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
