For the first time in the country, the Kerala government has decided to start its own e-taxi service. This simply means that people will have the option of traveling through the Kerala government’s e-taxi service instead of Ola and Uber. What is this service going to start from next month. What are its features, let us know in detail.
Kerala Savari is the name of the service.
According to news reports, this service is being started by the Labor Department of Kerala, which has been named ‘Kerala Sawaari’. It is an online taxi hiring service. It connects to the existing auto-taxi network in the state, with the aim of providing safe and hassle-free travel to the public in Kerala at affordable rates.

Kerala Public Education and Labor Minister V Shivankutty said that this is the first time that the government is launching an online taxi service in the country.

He said that under the ‘Kerala Sawari’ service, in addition to the fixed rate, only 8 percent service charge will be taken.
