New Delhi, March 24: Auto-booking App Jugnoo has alleged that Ola is using unethical practices to sabotage its business. Earlier Uber had also alleged Ola for similar malpractices. The company alo warned Ola of legal action if the online Taxi aggregator continued alleged unethical practices.

Samar Singla, Jugnoo co-founder and CEO said,"We witnessed this trend almost 10 days back when all of a sudden there was a surge in booking and the cancellation rate was equally high. We started mapping the areas where the bookings were being made from and invariably pointed at places close to Ola's office premise."

Jugnoo alleged that Ola employees have been creating fake accounts and booking and cancelling from the Jugnoo app. This is leading not only to loss of revenues, but also affecting the auto rickshaw driver's income and bonus on daily basis.

Close to 20,000 cancellations have been through 800 fake accounts.

Singla said,"We noticed this across three locations Gurgaon, Noida and Mysore where this activity was highly being employed. We have evidence to support our claims and will be more than happy to furnish the details if required. We are planning to take suitable legal action against Gurgaon, Noida and Mysore where this activity was highly being employed. We have evidence to support our claims and will be more than happy to furnish the details if required.

We are planning to take suitable legal action against Ola for the same but will refrain from doing so if they cease to do this."

Uber makes similar allegations. Uber in its plea before the Delhi High Court said that Ola employees have created over 93,000 fake accounts with the Uber App and have booked and cancelled rides, leading to a loss of 49.61 crore.

Ola, on the other hand, contended in the court that Uber's plea is an "offshoot" of the contempt petition filed against it by Ola for allegedly not complying with court directions to phase out diesel cabs.
