The Labor Minister said that the Kerala government will levy only 8-9 per cent service tax on its taxis, which is currently 20-30 per cent for other companies. This will increase the trend of customers towards ‘Kerala Sawari’ taxis and the customers will also get the benefit of cheap rides.

He said that the earnings from the Kerala ride will be spent on the government taxi driving training and the salary of the drivers. The minister said that Kerala ride taxi will be convenient and safe for women and children. The driver driving these taxis will be given a license only after taking clearance from the Kerala Police.

A ‘panic button’ will be provided in every taxi plying under the Kerala ride which will be useful to inform the police in case of accident and any kind of emergency. The Government of Kerala will implement this scheme uniformly throughout the state.
