New Delhi: Reacting to the outroar following the rape of a 25-year-old woman by a cab driver, the Delhi government on Monday came down on radio taxi services allowing only six companies to operate in the national capital.

"Easy Cab, Meru Cab, Mega Cab, Chanson Cab, Yo Cab and Air Cab are licensed with the transport department for operating as radio taxis in the city," the transport department said in a statement.

All other taxi service providers through web-based technology, which is not recognised, are prohibited from providing such services till they get licence from the transport department, the statement said.

The statement was issued three days after a female executive was raped by the cab driver of a vehicle provided by a US-based online taxi booking service.
