New Delhi : Taxi hailing app Ola on Saturday sent out mails to its customers saying that it has resumed operations in Delhi NCR, about a week after a crackdown by Delhi Traffic Police led to a disruption in its services.

“We are delighted to inform you that we are once again readily available at every nook and corner of Delhi NCR to provide you with a ride within minutes of you needing one,” Ola said in the mail.

The Delhi government has banned Ola, Uber and Taxi For Sure (TFS) from offering services in the state as they do not have licences under Modified Radio Taxi Scheme 2006 of the transport department of Delhi.

The state government still maintains that these firms will not be allowed to operate and strict action will be taken if they offer cab services without a licence.

“As Ola, Uber and Taxi For Sure do not have licences to operate their services in Delhi, they cannot run. If they operate, the transport department will seize their vehicle and take strict action against them,” a senior Delhi government official said. These firms applied for licences but the Delhi government rejected their application, following which Ola and TFS approached Delhi High Court.
