The Delhi high court on Wednesday refused to lift the ban on Uber cab services in NCR.

The high court, however, said Uber India Systems Private Ltd can approach the Delhi government’s transport department with its representation on December 29.

The court declined Uber’s request that it should be granted relief in parity with OLA cabs, which was on Tuesday allowed to operate in Delhi for the time being.

“It is not identical. Passengers pay to the taxi driver there and in your case the payments are accepted through other modes. We are not staying the order, but we would like them (the Delhi government) to hear you,” the HC said. It said the Uber India system shall provide necessary contact details on which the communication in this regard was to be sent.

Soon after the HC order, Uber in a press statement said it has “fully cooperated with the investigating authorities in providing all necessary details pertaining to the case.”
