Careem, three other cab comapnies closed for illegal operations
According to the officials, the notices were sent to the company’s owners; which were not replied by them hence, they were shut down.
A team that included assistant commissioner Saddar and Secretary Islamabad Transport Authority (ITA), raided the offices of two cab companies in the G-8 and F-11 markazes and sealed them as they were running illegally. The team found the offices of two other cab companies in the I-8 markaz and Bahria Town closed, Dawn News reported.
“These cab companies were operating in the city without approval or a permit,” an official said.
The complainant said some companies were using unregistered vehicles as taxis and are providing pick and drop services in the city and that such practices cause losses to the exchequer as they are not paying the taxes payable on the commercial use of vehicles.
Therefore, notices were issued to Careem Networks (Pvt) Ltd, Derbi Cab, Crown Cab and Citi Cab.
“It has come to the notice of the undersigned that you operate an illegal cab service in Islamabad. You are hereby directed to explain your position within three days from receipt of this communication. Otherwise, strict legal action shall be taken against you,” the notices read.
