The Delhi high court on Monday passed a decree “permanently injuncting” the two taxi driver unions and anyone associated with them from blocking cabs of Ola and Uber.
The court also stopped the unions and their members from removing the mobile devices installed in the app-based cabs.
The court order also restrained unions from staging any strike within 500 metres of the offices of Ola and Uber in Delhi.
The court had also asked Delhi police to ensure safety of the drivers working for the two companies.
“We are hopeful that the order will be effectively enforced and that action is taken against any person who attempts to block cars, confiscate devices or harass riders and drivers and that the safety of everyone using the Uber App in Delhi is ensured. We are committed to keeping Delhi moving and ensuring a reliable experience for riders and drivers,” Uber spokesperson said in a statement.
The pleas were moved to court after hundreds of drivers of Uber and Ola went on an indefinite strike from 10 February in Delhi NCR demanding fare hikes and basic amenities.
