On the Supreme Court’s decision to allow All-India Permit holding diesel cabs to continue ferrying BPM employees in Delhi-NCR
NASSCOM is thankful to the Supreme Court as well as the Government of India for understanding the genuine concerns of the BPM industry on the ban put on the plying of diesel based cabs in the Delhi-NCR region. We also thank Amicus Curiae Harish Salve and applaud the decision towards formulating a plan to phase out diesel cabs.
This is welcome news for the BPM industry, which has thrived in the region helping create job opportunities and supporting economic growth. The ban on cabs had put immense pressure on the sector and business continuity; potentially denting its image at a global level. Due to the nature of its work, the BPM industry functions 24×7 and its employees work across shifts day & night. The industry is cognizant of the safety of its employees, especially women hence we are heavily dependent of cab services to ferry its employees to and from their door-step.
NASSCOM pledges to continue its focus on promoting public transport and the use of non-polluting vehicles by the industry, and will continue to work towards creating more initiatives around sustainable transportation.
