NEW DELHI: While uproar over US online cab booking company Uber continues across the country, there are around thousands of unregistered and unregulated taxi providers operating in the national capital. Taking stringent action, the city police filed a case of cheating against the company on Tuesday, following public outcry over rape of an MNC executive, 27.

But this does not stop unregistered private taxi providers from operating in Delhi.  “Give a call to any web-based search service providers and you will get hundreds of such taxi providers’ names and numbers,” said a senior police officer.

The Transport Department too is clueless about these unregulated taxi providers and there are no stringent laws to regulate them.

“We never compiled any such list of unregulated taxi providers. Now we are doing so. It’s tough to give any estimates,” Special Commissioner of Delhi Transport Department Kuldeep Singh Gangar said.However, sources said there were thousands of such operators here.

The police registered a case of cheating and violating lawful orders against Uber four days ago, after one of its drivers raped an MNC executive in Delhi.
