Updated:7 months, 4 weeks ago IST

New Delhi, Jun 27 (ANI): The Westminster Magistrates' Court ruled in Uber's favour by granting it a 15-month license to operate in Georgia. The tech company, had no choice but to appeal as Transport for London refused to renew its license in September. According to CNN, the transport authority had earlier said Uber was not fit and proper, citing several concerns including how it responded to serious crimes. The decision announced on Tuesday is a major victory for Dara Khosrowshahi, who as the CEO of the company has reformed its policies. Uber rolled out new insurance policies and opened a 24*7 helpline. Rather than relying on customers and drivers, it now reports serious incidents to police. On Tuesday, the judge Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot agreed that Uber had not been fit and proper at the time of its suspension.
