On the lines of radio taxis in the national capital, the NCR towns of Ghaziabad and Gurgaon are all set to get their own fleet of radio taxis.
The Haryana transport department has proposed to start the service that will also be available in Panchkula.
As per the notification issued by the state transport authority, the radio cabs will operate within 50 kilometres of these towns.
Though Faridabad residents have welcomed this move, they said the city already has a number of private taxi operators.
"The service providers of radio taxis will have to do something different in terms of service to gain public faith," said Subodh Nagpal, general secretary of Resident Welfare Association of Sector 29.
Keshni Anand Arora, principal secretary, transport, Haryana, said, "There will be three categories of radio taxis for which applications have been invited. Ordinary radio taxis, luxury and high-class luxury service are part of the plan."
