Will Uber's this new plan is fruitful?

Accordingly App based ride share cap operator Uber is planning to launch a new feature where their drivers won’t be able to see the mobile numbers of the passengers they are picking up and the passengers in turn won’t know the number from which the driver is calling them. Meanwhile the call will be internalized at Uber and only some other number may show up on their mobile screens. Uber terms this ‘2-side call anonymization’.

Furthermore as per report the company says this move is being proposed after seeing the preferences and feedback from both their customers and drivers. Moreover Uber has this arrangement already working in a couple of countries like Australia and South Africa. Further when addressing the media, Uber’s President for South Asia, Pradeep Parameswaran has also indicated that Uber plans to expand its operations in India beyond the 31 cities where it currently operates.

Moreover when questioned on the impact of the high fuel prices on Uber’s fares, Parameswaran has responded by saying the company has the option to increase the tariffs but they do their own data analysis based on which they take these key decisions. Hence this led to his mentioning that the long-term solution is to shift to electric vehicles as soon as possible and Uber has already chosen Mahindra & Mahindra for this purpose and they plan to launch electric cars soon, which will be offered to run as taxis.
