P Chidambaram files affidavit for Ola in Delhi HC

Ola Cabs on Thursday filed an affidavit in the Delhi High Court that it would ply only CNG vehicles in Delhi and made changes in its app that allows users choose only CNG cabs in the national capital.

Former Finance Minister, P Chidambaram, a lawyer by profession, represented Ola in the court, a company spokesperson confirmed.

Ola made changes in its app that allow users to choose only CNG cabs in Delhi and a provision for choosing diesel cars for travel outside the city to Noida or Gurgaon.

"In order to assist driver-partners to conform with the local regulations, we have introduced a first of its kind technology that will help distinguish CNG and Diesel vehicles on the app, allowing us to be aware as well as keep track of such compliance and will enable users to choose only CNG vehicles for usage within Delhi," Ola said in a statement."We respect the orders of the Honourable High Court and will continue to be committed to building mobility for a billion people."

In July, the Delhi High Court directed the city government to strictly enforce its earlier ban of cabs that is not registered under the radio taxi service and running on diesel.
