    "Government heard views of Ola Cabs during a hearing, but it is not satisfied. The app-based taxi booking firm is claiming that it will bring all its cabs on CNG, but it is not the single rule to follow. "To run taxis in Delhi, there are several rules like installation of digital fare meters, operation through government-approved fare structure, GPS and PSV badge," a top government official said.

    According to the government, M/s ANI Technologies Pvt Ltd on the banner of Ola Cabs had applied for the application. "The Transport department has asked the company that if it wants to apply afresh for getting license, it can again apply under newly-introduced 'City Taxi Scheme' 2015.

All app-based cab service were banned in the national capital after a driver of Uber, the US-based online cab service provider, was accused of raping a 27-year-old financial consultant woman passenger in December last year.
