Launched as a cab-aggregator in Dec’15, the predatory pricing by Ola-Uber forced us to suspend operations in May’16. The opportunity for relaunch arose in Dec’16 when their own drivers were agitated and went on strikes all over India. Instead of relaunching, our founder-CEO together with several drivers conceived “Sewa Cab” (see below). Magic Sewa forms the backend of Sewa Cab and handles everything including tech, customer service, operations, marketing, etc.
It is an initiative owned by the drivers through Chaalak Shakti, a union. While Uber-Ola charge in excess of Rs.15,000 per month per driver, the low cost model of Sewa Cab is viable at only Rs.700. We expect 80-90% drivers across all metros to be part of Sewa Cab by 2017 end.
Sensing that all drivers’ unions in India are weak, Chaalak Shakti was created in Oct’2016 in consultation with Delhi’s cab drivers. It will be built into a 90 lakh strong pan-India union of drivers of all types of vehicles by the end of 2018. We believe in free markets and encourage members to compete on merits. One unique feature of the union is its membership App. In order to enroll, communicate with and help member-drivers, the union has created an Android App which is being constantly worked upon.
