BENGALURU: A handful of obscure cab aggregators is putting to the test Ola and Uber’s dominance of India’s taxi-app market, seeking an opportunity in the driver unrest that has rocked the two ride-hailing services.

Cabby, TenZillionCabs, Crony Cabs, HiCabs, DropTaxi and even bike taxi startup Baxi Taxi, which has a provision on its app for hailing cabs, are approaching thousands of disgruntled drivers plying for Ola and Uber to migrate to their platforms.

In Delhi, Bengaluru, Mumbai and other cities, hordes of drivers attached to Ola and Uber have staged agitations in recent months against diminishing incentives and payment policies that have made it tougher for them to earn what they used to. The two aggregators have cornered nearly all of India’s $9-billion taxi-app market, leaving Meru Cabs at a distant third place.

To break their hold, the upstart cab aggregators are trying to lure the drivers with differentiated payment structures and promises of improved earnings potential, although investors and analysts doubt that will be enough to crack the Ola-Uber duopoly.

TenZillionCabs, which has planned a pre-launch on March 27 in association with at least 10,000 drivers associated with the Chennai drivers’ union, is offering subscription packages for drivers to be a part of its platform.
