The Indian taxi market is estimated to be worth about $9 Bn (INR 54,000 Cr.), of which only 4-6% is organised. There are around 2.3 Mn taxis registered in India with players like Meru, OlaCabs, TaxiForSure, among others.

Uber was launched in India last year, and since it has launched its cheaper line of Uber X, it has registered more than 40% month-on-month growth. Currently, it has presence in 10 cities with more than 15,000 drivers in the country and is expanding rapidly.
