Uber Suspends Its Auto-Rickshaw Service
Uber always keeps trying for new ways to optimize its operations to increase revenue and market share. Uber tried Auto, Wifi, free shots in bar, free ride to home, free ride to venue, ice-cream, harley davidson test ride, super car ride in Chandigarh, april fool joke with ferrari supercar dummy and many more offers. Some offers continued for long time, some gets suspended. Here are few suspended services..

UberAUTO service suspended in Delhi
Uber started UberAUTO service in Delhi region to compete with Ola in India, but its the first time. But Uber has paused its auto-rickshaw service in Delhi. Called UberAUTO, the feature represented one of the car-hailing app’s attempts to localize to the Indian market. It launched in April and competed with a similar service from Ola.

Uber launched WiFi enabled cars in Hyderabad in association with Airtel 4G and other cities but now I don't see any car with WiFi device on my map. I confirmed with one of the Uber driver to know the status, they also don't know why they WiFi have stopped.

UberBLACK suspended in Hyderabad
Earlier Uber Hyderabad stopped UberBlack service in and they have increased UberSUV rates to Rs 20 per km which caused massive drop in UberSUV booking. One of my long known driver has stopped running for Uber, now taking outside booking via contacts to pay EMI and personal loans taken for purchase.

I see Uber Mumbai is still has option to book wifi enabled car, they are also very few in number. May stop anytime. Let us know in comments if any service in suspended in your city.

  • Uber has pausedits auto-rickshaw service in Delhi.
  • Auto-rickshaws are a popular mode of transportation in Indian cities, but UberAUTO was up against rival services, including Olas (which is available in six major cities, including Delhi), and Jugnoo, which has raised $8 million in funding and lets users hail auto-rickshaws for deliveries in addition to transportation.
  • In Delhi, UberAUTO also competed with the governments own auto-rickshaw hailing app called PoochO.
  • India is Ubers second-biggest market outside of the U.S., but it faces a formidable rival in Ola, which has the infrastructure and funding to quickly launch and scale localized services.

How to Re-authorize or unlink paytm with Uber India App

Having and active Uber and Paytm account is good, but if something goes wrong from either Uber or paytm side, you the customer suffers a lot. You can't book your ride back home, you can't book ride to airport, railway station. It becomes annoying to have such messy technical app. We cannot predict what may happen in future but we may be ready with some preparation.

Uber does all account sweep for security measures from time to time, if it finds any suspicion, it blocks account, put hold on booking a ride, asks for re-verification of ID or payment method. Recently Paytm was hacked and some hacker were able to make payment in paytm from some other account, hance Uber took security measure and put hold on some accounts.

The above image shows Merchants Authorized by you (Screenshot updated), where you can see Uber if you have already added paytm with uber.

How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Update: Banned account is a pain, I have many friends who got locked out form Uber due to suspicious activity, some got their account enabled again after some conversation with Uber support and mostly are banned for life. Here is one scenario when you account may get banned. Read this story till end to get the idea.

Q. How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Recently uber had this scheme of "refer someone, that refferal gets 600 credits and you get 600 when he makes his/her first ride".

I made many people join , though all refferals were real and accounts were created with their permission and presence but all accounts were created from my phone .

I earned many credits. But soon my account was closed down.
Now whenever I try logging in from any acount in my phone  it gets banned within few minutes.

Is there any solution or any hack to avoid this and get my acount back ? I still have 5k credits left in my account and I desperately want it.
