Punjab Govt Clarifies that Careem, Uber Are Not Banned!

Punjab Government, that previously called Uber and Careem services as illegal, has now said that services are not suspended and that the matter will be resolved with-in next 15 days.

Through a brief note published on Facebook, the Punjab government said that directions for resolution of situation came directly from Mian Shahbaz Sharif, Chief Minister Punjab.

Statement said that services were never banned, however, it didn’t say anything on what the earlier notification meant exactly as it had termed the services as “Illegal”.

Statement further said that Uber, Careem or other ride-hailing services will have to fulfill legal obligations. “Companies are required to get their drivers & vehicles registered”, it said.

Punjab government is hoping to get this task done within next 15 days as transport dept of Punjab will carry out the exercise while in collaboration with ride-hailing services.

Punjab Government said that sole purpose for the entire activity is public safety & to bring ride-hailing services in tax net.

Not to be mention, Sindh government had also issued a similar notification. It is expected that Sindh will undergo similar registration of ride-hailing services in the province as well.

  • 4 stories already done on this but still nothing reported from pitb/umar saif whose views should be 1st thing a tech blog commenting on uber/careem sought. We understand that you have to generate a “narrative” to get hits and shares but atleast do the bare minimum to avoid turning into a rag.

    • Tayyab bhai, even right now those 2 stories are on home page as featured stories and yeh story jab pora page scroll karo tu end main aapko dikhti hai aur woh bhi kuch hours baad 2nd page par chali jaegi and kissa khatam. ProPK ke liye job well done because they got alot of traffic and shares on those articles.

    • Wah bhae wah …aap tou door-andashhh niklay bohat.

      Wasay illegal kaha tha banned nahe kaha tha… aur jitna tax ana ha wo inkay personal account mai nahe jana…agar jaye ga tou kitnay years tak ?
      Suppose after an year it is PTI’s govt. they will benefit from the tax collected from Careem and Uber to run government.

  • Lo hadh hogayi, ban kab bola tha government ne. They said illegal hai aur isko legal kar ke under laws lana hai. It was you ProPK who used the word BAN in your articles aur yehi rona kal pora din main ro raha tha sare comments main.

    • Waisay aap aik baat ka jawab dain.
      Kisi illegal organisation k khilaf legal action ka kya matlab hota hai? Yai jo takhreebi jamatain illegal hain wo banned hain ya nahi?
      TV pai aya hai, careem aur uber nain khud kaha hai ban hai. Yai to media ki support ki waja sai ban nahi laga. Careem aur Uber dono nain yehi baat boli hai.

  • are you ethical enough to be trusted? you already uttered alot of bullshit earlier. What makes you to comeback with a proper evidence now?

  • All cars used by ride sharing services should be identifiable through its number plate like yellow number plate. It will help in alleviating security concerns.
