Goa government filed a case against Uber for illegal operation in the coastal area

The Goa government has lodged a police complaint against Uber India Systems Private Limited, accusing the company of conducting illegal operations within the coastal state. Uber recently introduced its services in Goa, offering facilities such as airport pick-up and drop, but it allegedly did so without obtaining the required permissions. State Transport Minister Mauvin Godinho informed the media on Tuesday that his department took formal action against Uber for its unauthorized operations in the tourist state.

The department has urged the police to take necessary measures against the app-based taxi aggregator. Godinho mentioned that a previous email was sent to the cybercrime cell, and on Monday, a formal letter was issued for further action. The complaint highlights the government’s concern over the company’s non-compliance with regulations in Goa.

Uber’s entrance into the state’s transportation market has sparked controversy and prompted the government to address the issue promptly. The situation has raised questions about proper regulation and adherence to the state’s transportation laws.
