SC stays bike-taxi operations of Rapido & Uber in Delhi

The Supreme Court (SC), opining that licenses are required for the use of vehicles as transport vehicles under the scheme of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 and, further, that Motor Vehicle Aggregator Guidelines, 2020 issued by the Central Government can never override a statute, stayed the order passed by Delhi High Court (Delhi HC) allowing bike-taxi operations in Delhi. The Delhi HC had passed an order granting bike-taxi operators, like Rapido and Uber, to operate without aggregator licenses till Delhi Government notifies its policy for the same.
