Uber launched its new taxi service in New Delhi on Wednesday, giving the service a wider reach to Indian taxi drivers.
The app, which is being rolled out to users across the country, was announced by Uber CEO Travis Kalanick on Twitter.
The service, called Uber India, allows users to hail and pay for rides using a mobile phone, but drivers are required to register and pay before using the service.
The service also allows users who don’t have a smartphone to hail a taxi using a digital wallet.
Uber India is being offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
The first 20 drivers registered for the service will receive 10 minutes of free ride credit, while the remaining 20 drivers will get one hour of free rides for the first 10 minutes.
The Uber India service is priced at Rs. 3,999 ($40).
While Uber India launched in India earlier this year, the company has yet to expand beyond the city of Delhi, where it already has its drivers.
Uber India operates in five cities, including Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Kolkata.
