His experience with Uber Delhi CarPool option, in his words, copied form team bhp forum.

Uber announced their Uber Pool platform where you could share your UBER with others, and even gave a chance to private vehicle owners to sign up on the platform! Details here.

I was obviously very excited and quickly decided to sign up and enrolled in the driver program. I have to mention the entire process was very smooth and completely online. I just went, uploaded all the documentation they requested and waited for their approval. I did have to tweet to them a few times to get my account verified.

Signup experience:

  • Go to and sign up as a driver.
  • Upload all necessary documentation they require. (ID Proof, Car Registation, Car Insurance
  • Additional documents they requested was PASSPORT
  • You can sign up multiple vehicles, you will need to submit ownership proof and insurance for all of them.
  • Go to and update bank details.
  • Voila! The account has been verified.
  • Download UBER Partners APP on iOS/Android and you're ready to go!

Some of the key points to remember for Uber POOL Delhi currently are.
  • Low requests incoming because of not many people wanting to pool.
  • App interface is a little clunky, and I somehow feel its not working correctly.
  • Carpooling option is available only between 7AM – 9PM
  • Carpool trips can be requested from and to most parts of Central, South & West Delhi, Gurgaon and some parts of NOIDA.
  • You cannot have a friend or anyone else in the car, its against their policy.
  • The payouts you get as a driver are paltry and not a good incentive to signup

Jack Bailey, a 25-year-old Splend Uber driver, has picked up about 10 passengers in the $210,000 Tesla S 90D since New Year's Eve in Sydney and he will be driving the car for a couple more weeks before handing it over to the next Splend driver.

Bailey said since he's been driving the Tesla he has been careful with choosing his passengers. He would only pick up passengers with 4.8 or 4.9 out of five star ratings for the fear they would damage the car.

It's not about what you do it, Its all about how you do it. People make money out of nowhere and people loose money everywhere. 
Let me know If you got better reason not to drive for Uber, Uber is great opportunity who know how to cash on, for others its just another job. Uber mostly get negative publicity all around the world by media and reporters because its disrupting the current taxi economy.

Old taxi companies are closing, so they are uniting to fight against Uber, but no one knows about the future. In the meantime cash on Uber and have best time. Learn more about more about being a driver here.

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.

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.
