  • Users in Delhi can longer book cabs through Uber during the city-wide lockdown till March 31.
  • However, the Ola app still allows users to hail a ride, even if it’s to head out of the city — even though Delhi’s borders are supposed to be shut during the lockdown.
  • According to Ola, it will keep a minimal network of vehicles operational during the lockdown.
Two of the biggest ride-hailing companies in India, Uber and Ola, are making changes to their services in New Delhi as the government issues a city-wide lockdown till March 31.

While Uber has suspended all booking on its platform, Ola still allows users to book cabs — even though the fares may be a little higher than usual, to discourage travel.

“Uber is complying with all Central and State Government directives related to its services for containing the spread of Coronavirus. We are communicating the status of specific cities with riders through our app,’’ an Uber spokesperson told Business Insider.
