A start-up has come out with an app-based cab-hailing service that promises to do away with the intimidating ‘surge pricing’. The startup, which offers service through the app CabIndians, says it will offer fixed rate card for given distances.

“We have tied up with about 700 drivers. We have launched our services in Hyderabad and have plans to launch services in Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai after we entered into tie-ups with at least 500 drivers in each of these cities. We expect it to happen in the next three months,” a spokesperson of the cab-hailing firm said.

Telangana Deputy Chief Minister Mohammad Mahmood Ali formally launched the service on Saturday.

Minimum tariff starts off at Rs 40 and there would be zero surcharge during peak hours. The startup is promoted by Bilwam India Cabs Private Limited.

Besides, the users can hire drivers, who have been vetted by the cab services firm for safety and security. The service is also supported by an offline phone number
