Indian court revokes ban on Uber in New Delhi

An Indian court has lifted a ban on Uber Technologies Inc. in New Delhi.

The judge said Uber should be allowed to operate while it is seeking a license from the Delhi Transport Department, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The ruling follows a similar decision by a court last month in favor of Uber’s local rival, ANI Technologies Pvt. Ltd.

Delhi was given 10 days to set out the requirements for Uber to be granted a license.

If the company fails to fulfill the stipulations, transport officials can pass a new order prohibiting the company from operating, the judge said.

In December, Delhi authorities barred all ride-hailing companies without a license from operating after a woman alleged that a driver she booked through the Uber app had raped her. The driver who is standing trial had pleaded innocent.
