After RTO raid, Namma TYGR to apply for licence

Cab aggregator Namma TYGR, backed by former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy, has run into a bumpy road with RTO officials seizing the cars attached to the company for operating without licence.

The action has led to a political slugfest with JD(S)
leaders alleging a conspiracy in the issue.

RTO officials refused to comment on the matter, stating that they were just doing their job.

Drivers' union leader Tanveer Pasha, a JD(S) functionary instrumental in the formation of Namma TYGR, said the RTO officials showed "high-handed" behaviour by seizing the vehicles without serving a notice.

"The application for license demands that we comply with the Karnataka On Demand Transportation Technology Aggregator Rules, 2016. However, several provisions of the rule are being held by the high  court. We will apply for a licence in a week," he said.

Transport Commissioner B Dayananda initially refused to speak on the matter.

When  insisted for a clarity on the issue of the legality of licensing under the rules, he merely said: "The stay was on provisions in the rules and not the entire rules itself. Let them come under the legal ambit first."
