The service provider also said that they would employ hatchbacks like Toyota Liva, Indica Vista and Ford Figo for the air-conditioned cab service. It has priced the service at Rs 16 per km and in the night it will be raised to 25%. The business works through a driver-owned model. Moreover, customers can always hail a cab on the streets if its not occupied. The low-cost service will have a dedicated 24x7 call centre for booking the cab.

The cheaper taxi service 'Genie' will have a dedicated call centre team, separate from its parent. It will also use the same technologies, including digital meters, automated e-bill and GPS tracking like Meru.

Siddhartha Pahwa, chief executive officer, Meru Cabs reportedly said, "The city has the capacity to absorb 500-1,000 Genie cabs and nationally it is around 10,000".
