NEW DELHI: Uber, the US-based online taxi-hailing company, today provided "full" details to Delhi Government which it had asked for its application to resume services in the city.

Authorities had set a February 25 deadline to provide supporting details for the firm's application to operate in the national capital.

State Transport Department officials said the details submitted by Uber will be examined and thereafter, a final decision on granting it a license will be taken.

"Uber today submitted details the Transport Department had asked for. We will now examine these details and thereafter, a decision on whether it be granted a license will be taken," said a senior government official.

Uber was banned in Delhi in December after one of its drivers was accused of raping a female passenger. Last month, the company applied for a radio taxi licence to operate through its subsidiary Resource Expert India Pvt Ltd.

The government, however, issued a 'deficiency memo' on January 24 asking it to furnish all details before it as mentioned in recently introduced 'Modified Radio Taxi Scheme (2006)'.

Similar memos were served to app-based taxi operator 'Taxi For Sure' and another firm who had also applied for licences.

Sources said the these taxi providers, including Uber, did not provide full details in their applications for procuring a licence according to the laid down rules.

"In Uber's application, certificate/undertaking for parking of radio taxis was not provided. They also did not mention telephone number, e-mail address and address proof of their registered office in Delhi.

"Besides, call centre management details were also not provided in the application," the sources said.

Rules set by Delhi's transport department in December require taxi companies to install emergency buttons in their cabs and have tracking devices.
