Cabs Paraforce launches taxi services with ex-defense, police personnel as cab captains – ET Auto


The regulations includes that no cab can be allowed to stop for more than 5 minutes between the origin and the destination, which reassures an extra cover of security to the commuters.

New Delhi: Cabs Paraforce, a purpose-driven venture empowering retired army, paramilitary, and police personnel, launched its cab services on April 23, 2024 at the Constitution Club of India.

The chief guests of the launch event were Deepak Punia and Yogeshwar Dutt, both being world renowned wrestlers and Janice Darbari, Ambassador of Montenegro. In the first phase, the cab services were introduced in Delhi-NCR and Hyderabad.

Women’s safety, especially while travelling at night through different cab services, has been a much less talked about issue for quite a while. The number of reported cases of crimes committed against them has increased over the past few years. Cabs Paraforce has recruited retired army, paramilitary, and defence personnel from all ranks and order, as Cab Captains, for advanced safety and convenience of the commuters, the company said in a media release.

Cabs Paraforce comes with a wide set of security features. Its vehicles are equipped with the best in class on-board security cameras, along with a GPS sensor, which ensures the safety of the traveller, and simultaneously monitors the movement of the vehicles by military personnel.

The regulations of the company also include that no cab can be allowed to stop for more than 5 minutes between the origin and the destination, which reassures an extra cover of security to the commuters. The cabs of Cab Paraforce also come equipped with the first ever in-built threat detectors, which analyse and troubleshoot the problems within the vehicle, and keep the customer as well as the Captain, safe and sound, the media release said.

Deepak Mudgal, Founder and Director of Cabs Paraforce, said, ‘Through the launch of Cabs Paraforce, we are much content with the fact that our commuters can feel more than secure in our cabs, and can even travel at any time and from anywhere without having to worry about their security. We even believe that the crimes against women, specifically in the taxi industry, would come down with our advanced security features.’ Talking about the expansion of the services, he further said, ‘Initially, we are introducing our cab services to Hyderabad and Delhi. However, in future, we would expand our network across other cities as well, to ensure that a complete environment of safe travelling may be created in our country.”
