Goa: Taximen deny overcharging, say rates fixed by state

Taxi operators have denied that they have a monopoly in Goa and have said that taxi fares are based on the prices fixed by the transport department. They submitted a memorandum to the directorate of transport saying that the taxi business provides income to Goa’s unemployed youth. This comes in the wake of the transport minister Mauvin Godinho’s statement on bringing cab aggregators to Goa.
