Taxi licence and base on agenda

Nanise Loanakadavu

IN ORDER to have a modern system, government will need to provide social services that have a clear and transparent rule regarding the issuing of licences and taxi permits.

At a public consultation in Nasinu on Monday night on the activities of the LTA, Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said one of the key anomalies that existed within the taxi licensing regime was that base permits were given by municipal councils and taxi licences given by LTA.

"These two don't necessarily jell sometimes because some have a base but don't have a licence while some have a licence and they do not have a base so they cannot operate," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

"Another point that is very critical is that, who gets the taxi licence," he said.
