Panaji : All Goa Private Bus Owners Association (AGPBOA) Secretary Sudip Tamhankar in a press briefing said App based billing is a better option for taxi operators than installing a digital meter.
This mobile app can be used instead of digital meter “no taxi operator is using meters across India, all are using app,” said Tamhankar.
Tamhankar speaking about the benefits of mobile app said if it is installed it will save the cost of taxi operators as well as the government. “This is a reliable app with GPS and bills can be sent to the customer on WhatsApp,” added Tamhankar.
He has also slammed the Director of Transport, Rajan Satardekar who allegedly has given remarks on their written representation trying to dismiss it by saying AGPBOA has no role in raising taxi operators’ grievances.
Tamhankar said, “this remark is very unfortunate because even the High Court has agreed with our stand with taxi operators. We have 2 members who are taxi operators hence we have locus standi and can raise grievances related to Taxis”
