    The Road Transport Authority (RTA) officials in Hyderabad are cracking down on vehicles from other states, especially cabs operated by app-based aggregator companies. These cabs, including those from Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Maharashtra, have been operating in the city without the necessary documents like permits and state tax. To address this issue, the transport department has started conducting special checks and imposing penalties on violators.

    According to the rules, any vehicle from another state that stays in Telangana for more than 30 days must pay state tax. During the checks, vehicles found to be operating without paying the required tax are penalized for breaking the law. Some drivers have expressed concerns about the app-based aggregator companies attaching vehicles from other states and allowing them to operate in the city, which goes against the Transport Act.

    Drivers feel that they are being penalized unfairly while the app aggregators continue to attach vehicles from other states on a daily basis. The Telangana Gig and Platform Workers Union State president has praised the transport department for taking action to address this issue. However, he also pointed out that companies like Ola and Uber are attaching vehicles using temporary tents on roadsides, bypassing proper verification processes.

    In order to ensure compliance with transport rules and regulations, the government and transport authorities should instruct these companies to follow the law and conduct all operations at official office premises. This will help prevent the illegal operation of vehicles from other states in Hyderabad.
