“When it comes to getting around Delhi, auto-rickshaws are a staple. We recognise the history and value of autos to the transportation landscape. For us, uberAUTO is another way of using technology to offer more choice, making life simpler and keep Delhi moving,” Uber said in a blog post.

Further, the company  said the passengers will not have to pay booking fees or a service charge on top of the fare.

On the other side, Ola, which launched auto booking service last year in November, currently has over 40,000 autos on its platform and in Delhi alone, Ola has 5000 autos, making it the largest player in this segment in Delhi. Currently, Ola has auto booking facility in 6 cities which are Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Delhi and Bangalore.
