more-inAfter reports that the Delhi government was once again considering a proposal to ban shared cab rides, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said cab sharing was a “good idea” but the security of passengers, particularly women, was a concern. The Hindu had reported on Wednesday that the government was contemplating banning the sharing of cabs, something which it had earlier put off. On Thursday, Mr. Kejriwal said in a tweet: “I agree that ride sharing is a good idea. Sharing a ride wid strangers may not be safe for women [sic].”According to sources in the government, opinion on allowing ride sharing is split as the existing laws do not allow it. The Act would have to be amended by the Centre to allow ride sharing of cabs.
