Transport Minister Sudin Dhavalikar held a meeting with taxi operators on Wednesday over the implementation of the High Court’s order on taxi meters and the Supreme Court’s order on Speed Governors.   

According to sources present in the meeting, the Transport Minister told the group that the state government, being a party in the matter before the Supreme Court would have no option but to implement the decision of the court.   

Dhavalikar instead suggested that the taxi operators file an intervention before the Supreme Court as an NGO to press for their demands.   

Speaking to The Goan, Vasudev Arlekar a representative of the taxi operators who was present at the meeting said that the meeting was inconclusive in that there was no final decision was agreed.   

“We have decided that we will see how things pan out over the next few days. For the moment we are not opposing the implementation of the speed governors and the digital meters,” Arlekar told The Goan.   

Taxi operators in the state have been reluctant to implement meters as well as speed governors on various grounds but primarily because it will eat into their margins.
