CRT backs local taxi operators against app-based service

Press Trust of India  |  Panaji 

Centre for Responsible (CRT), an organisation backed by Church, today came out in support of who are opposing an app-based cab service launched by the Development Corporation.

Father Freddy Braganza, incharge of CRT, said in a press release that the 'GoaMile' service introduced by GTDC is entirely operated by a Pune-based private firm.

The GTDC's initiative thus only benefits corporates and not local taxi operators, he alleged.

"Instead of curbing illegal activities operations, the government engaged a private operator to introduce app-based taxi service without engaging and encouraging traditional tourist taxi owners and drivers to manage their own app for the service," he said.
