Meghalaya Govt approves rules, fares for taxi aggregators, bike taxis

Shillong, July 20: The state Cabinet on Tuesday approved the Meghalaya Taxi Aggregator Operational Rules to regulate the two-wheeler taxi aggregators operating in the state.

Addressing the media, Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said, “The Act was passed a very long time back in 2020 but the rules were not framed and hence we have finally framed the rules.”

As per the rules, basic license fee for individuals or company aggregators will be Rs 700 per year per vehicle and permit fee will be Rs 300, if they are to operate from a specific location which means the city or district or region and if they are to operate throughout the state then the amount will be Rs 1300 as license fee and Rs 200 as permit, he said.


He added, the government has also finalized the rates for passenger fare. The proposed fare is Rs 10 for the first kilometre and Rs 5 for subsequent kilometres and a holding charge of Rs 4 for every 5 minutes. This has also been finalised for bike taxis.

The CM said the taxi aggregators should also ensure they have proper App, GPS, registration etc. “The identification of the driver should be available and safety measures should be followed in every bike, so all those aspects have been put in the Meghalaya Taxi Aggregator Operational Rules.”

According to him, action will be taken if they are over charging the passengers.
