The Delhi government announced the 'Delhi Motor Vehicle Aggregator and Delivery Service Provider Scheme 2023', on Wednesday, 29 November aiming to promote green and sustainable mobility and improve transportation services in the city by establishing a comprehensive regulation and licensing framework for aggregators offering passenger transport and delivery services.

While addressing the media, Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said, "There has been a long need for licensing and regulating the aggregators in the state for smoother operations for Delhiites. It is the first time in India that aggregator guidelines have also defined phase-wise electrification targets for these operators."

"Under the leadership of CM Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi has always taken steps towards being a cleaner and greener city. India has targeted being net zero by 2070. This scheme is an initiative by the capital city towards the same. It is also the first time that we are allowing bike taxis to run in the city. Overall, this scheme is a step towards enhancing public safety and convenience for Delhiites and features guidelines on vehicle cleanliness, driver behavior, and timely resolution of customer complaints."
