Telangana State Minorities Finance Corporation In alignment with Uber car rental services launches a scheme for the drivers belonging to the minority groups. State Minority Finance Corporation will provide financial support for driver to become the owner of the cabs and further placement activities will be conducted by the Uber car services.
Officials said that this programme will help the drivers from the minority group in increasing the earning and raising the level of the livelihood. Only the drivers trained under the programme will get the financial assistance to own a cab which will be placed as taxi under Uber taxi services.
Major problem faced by the scheme is the opposition of Telangana cab owners and Driver’s association. Member of the association is saying that they face lot of problems in repaying the financed amount afterward.
They also said that taxi services like Ola and Uber gives more preference to new drivers who come under their services than the people already with them. Taxi services like Ola and Uber have led to the decrement of the earning which was usually higher before this taxi companies.
Number of taxies on the road is much more than required which led to higher competitions on road.
According to the Chairman of Telangana Taxi owners and Driver’s Association said that this scheme will make the lives of pre-existing drivers and cab owner much worse than before.
