Sindh government’s spokesperson Murtaza Wahab on Sunday dismissed the reports circulating that the provincial government was planning to ban the ride hailing apps Airlift and SWVL.
Wahab tweeted saying, “The news of banning SWVL & Airlift is incorrect. To the contrary, Sindh Government is in the process of introducing a law regulating these private enterprises after consulting all stakeholders.”
The news of banning SWVL & Airlift is incorrect. To the contrary, #SindhGovt is in the process of introducing a law regulating these private enterprises after consulting all stakeholders. Hopefully we will become 1st province to recognise & regulate such enterprises #SindhFacts https://t.co/9E3Fg0w3Op

Last night, online ride-hailing Airlift had announced about implementing Sindh Government’s rules.
In a statement, Airlift Director Syed Mehr Haider said that the company will adhere to all the conditions set forth by Sindh Government.
“Our top-most priorities are solving the traffic problems of Karachi and providing people a comfortable travel experience,” he said.
It is pertinent to inform that the Sindh Transport Department sent a notice to the company ‘Airlift’ and ‘SWVL’ in Karachi that public transport could not be allowed without a route permit.
Speaking on the occasion, Airlift Director Meher Haider said that they will fulfill all the conditions set by Sindh government, solving traffic problems in Karachi and traveling with dignity is a top priority.
Maher Haider said that being a Pakistani company, the company’s revenue will not go out from the country, and its success would curtail country’s import bill.
