What's different?: Wify Cabs won't have peak time pricing, night charges: CEO
The company is planning to introduce its services across all the smart cities, excluding Goa and Port Blair, Das said.
Highlighting its benefits over other cab services, Das informed that Wify Cabs will have only one rate of Rs. 5/km and won't have any peak time pricing or night charges.
The start-up firm has raised a seed capital of Rs. 1.2cr, Das said.

CEO Mridul Das said they will tie up with different hospitals and private owners for their ambulance services that will be offered through Wify Cabs app. "We also plan to invest 8% of our profit into CSR, much higher than the mandated 2%," Das added.
