Next big thing in India’s Internet marketplace after online retailers – WHAT?

taxiwar

Every Indian marketing analyst has one question in mind.
What’s the next big thing in India’s Internet marketplace after online retailers Flipkart and Snapdeal? Investors are betting that it could well be an on-demand taxi hailing service.
Companies such as Ola, TaxiForSure, Uber and Meru are experiencing a boom in demand for their cab services in a country where the transport infrastructure is still creaky and safe public and private commuting options are few.
A shift in consumer habits towards convenience and on-demand services, and, most crucially, low prices, have fuelled the boom.
“These days, the first thing a college graduate wants is the latest gadget rather than a car. Such shifts in consumer habits including the growing preference for convenience and use of smartphones for buying goods and services are helping the industry grow exponentially,”
Ola and Uber, in particular, have grown explosively over the past year by offering car rides at prices lower than the fares charged by auto rickshaws. How long can such prices be sustained for is anyone’s guess, but for now these companies continue to spend massive amounts of capital on marketing, discounts, recruiting thousands of new drivers and expanding into new markets.

Women Taxi Divers- Women Safety – Views by Quora Authors

Votecab team consistently participate in Quora by posting questions and answering on taxi cab perspective.

We got notable authors who shared their views for most of questions posted by us. Few of them are posted here for the question “Will introducing women taxi drivers unriddle women’s safety problems in India?“.

Vineeta Tyagi:

The only way out is to carry pepper sprays and swiss knives, because the female driver might not be a rapist but people with criminal intents come in all forms.
No matter how civilized we get, vigilance is something we cant hope to leave behind, this applies to both men and women. DONT TRUST STRANGERS!

Sharmistha Das:

No it won’t . Women drivers are good for employment  purpose  only . Safety would still be a problem to be tackled at individual level . It will also  mean  both driver and passenger  needs  to carry pepper sprays .

Naina Gupta:

It wont make much difference to the safety of the women but yes.. introducing lady cab drivers will give a rocket like boost to the confidence of the women who still shy away from coming out of their homes due to safety reasons.

Dhaval Trivedi:

I would see this as the opportunity for the women to enter in the area of the driving profession. There are cities which have already have the women drivers. But beleiving that if the women are being taken by the women drivers will be 100% safe is not true.
But my vote goes for yes because it will definately increase confidence of the women passengers about their safety.

Vamshi Krishna:

There is no permanent solution to any problem. Getting the solution to a  problem leads to surging another problem.
There are no immediate and instant solutions to making cities safe for women.  Explanation below is not supported to any gender.

Considering few points:
1)As supporting evidence, Women are more responsible and adhere to the traffic rules than men.
2) Women drivers for Women, obviously reduces life threat /Forced Sex to some extent.
3)Women drivers for Women also reduces drunk and drive cases.
4)Statistically women drivers speeding will be under control as per norms.

On the other side
1) As per the evidence, most of the incidents occur during night time. So women need security during night, WHETHER THEY ARE WOMEN DRIVERS OR WOMEN
2)Fact says, Women don’t react as well in dangerous situations instantly.
3)Women drivers for Women will not guarantee increase in safety measures for women commuters.

Concluding from the above facts that, Though women drivers for women reduces life threat/forced sex upto some extent, but this is not only the solution.Both women driver taxi service providers(TSP) and women commuters should embed technology, safety equipment’s and safety precautions to avoid unexpected situations.

Maitreyi Karn:

It’ll surely help for the taxi business but rape problem will not be wiped out. The society as a whole has to evolve to remove this problem. Taxi providing companies can surely train their drivers and educate them about women safety and also imbibe in them the culture of safe pick ups and drops so as to gain the trust of its customers.

Do’s and Dont’s while taking a taxi cab

This post is mainly for public safety while booking a taxi cab especially for women. There is no intention of marketing our company and it is purely non profitable  article.

Do..

  • Book in advance. Pre-booking a taxi will avoid last-minute – and possibly risky – decisions. Book with a firm that someone you know uses regularly. Try and find a service that uses text or call-back to let you know when the taxi is arriving.
  • Get vehicle details if possible. When you book, ask if they can tell you the make and color of vehicle as well as the cab driver’s name.
  • Tell someone else your plans. If you are travelling to meet a friend, give them the name of the taxi company, where you are being picked up from and what time you expect to get there.
  • Sit in the back. The safest seat is the one behind the driver as you are furthest out of reach. If a group of you are taking the taxi, ensure that the last person to be dropped off sits there. Keep your belongings on your person.
  • Use your mobile. If you feel nervous, an idea is to phone a friend or simply pretend to do so. This will make it less likely that anything untoward will happen. If you are seriously concerned about anything, phone the police.
  • When you have reached your destination, ask the driver to wait until you are inside. They should be willing to do this because it will make it more likely you will use their service again in future.

Don’t ..

  • Avoid wearing too much of jewelry and taking heavy cash.
  • If you are traveling during night time,please make sure that the driver is not drunken.
  • Don’t talk about any important matters like your bank,credit card,savings,phone number inside the taxi.
  • Women should avoid traveling alone especially during night time
  • Keep the contact numbers of the local police station or your friends in case of emergency.
  • Make a note of the taxi registration number and name of the operator and message to closest one before you get in taxi (especially for women traveling alone day/night).
