In 2016, India’s ride-hailing app Uber launched a ride-sharing service in Delhi, the country’s largest city.
The ride-share app was not an entirely successful one.
As the New York Times wrote, it was “in short supply of drivers and drivers were struggling to get the service going.”
In a bid to fill the gap, Uber offered incentives to its drivers.
These incentives were supposed to give drivers an incentive to take more risks in their jobs.
For example, if a driver took more risks, Uber would pay them a bonus.
The Times wrote: Uber’s incentive system could work well for a startup, but it’s not a game-changer.
Uber has long used these incentives to reward drivers who drive risky and risky errands.
A 2015 study by the National Council of Applied Economic Research, a government think tank, showed that drivers in India were likely to be “more than 20% less likely to accept offers of higher pay and benefits than drivers in other countries.”
That study found that drivers were “less likely to choose to accept a reward that pays more in compensation than the reward they receive for driving” the same distance.
Uber’s incentives have been criticized as exploitative, and a 2015 study from the Brookings Institution concluded that the incentives “could be more effective in improving driver performance and promoting driver safety than in improving revenue or other metrics of Uber.”
In India, Uber also used the incentives to give its drivers a cut of the rides that they drive.
According to the Times of Indian, the company used these subsidies to pay off its drivers to take less risks.
Uber didn’t stop there.
In 2015, it announced that it would allow drivers in the Indian city of Hyderabad to earn bonuses for taking the Uber app’s cars to and from work.
This was to make the service more appealing to potential riders.
The NYT said that “it is also offering drivers the option of paying for the trips with Uber credits or cash.”
These bonuses were supposed “to encourage drivers to drive fewer hours in their career to earn more money.”
In the end, it didn’t help drivers earn as much money as they thought.
The incentives were criticized as unfair and exploitative.
Uber claimed that it had taken steps to protect its drivers from exploitation.
In a statement, Uber said that it “has implemented a system to verify drivers’ identity, which is a necessary step in ensuring they are fully compensated for their time on the job.”
In an interview with the Times, Uber’s India head of operations and policy, Anand Pahwa, said that Uber’s Indian drivers “are not required to have any special credentials and are not required or incentivized to drive the Uber cars.”
The Times also wrote: In some cities, Uber has even allowed drivers to earn an Uber credit by driving for its own app, UberX, which also has its own drivers, and has a lower minimum wage.
Uber says it has taken steps in the past to verify the identity of drivers who are actually using its app.
But Uber also has not always been upfront about the details of its verification processes, and it has said that in some cases, it has not been able to confirm the identity.
In the Times article, Pahwah said that after the company’s app was launched in India, “we decided to take action to verify its drivers by doing a complete background check.”
“There were some issues that we had in the verification process,” he told the Times.
Uber also offered incentives in the form of discounts for drivers who drove its cars to work.
Uber had set up incentives to incentivize drivers to go to work during peak hours, or when people were going to be on the roads, according to the NYT.
The bonuses were meant to incentivise drivers to work harder and drive more, but the incentives didn’t work out as expected.
The incentive scheme also didn’t seem to help drivers who didn’t get their bonus for taking Uber’s cars.
According the Times: Many drivers were frustrated that the bonus did not appear to be working.
“I didn’t receive a bonus because I’m not Uber drivers, I’m a driver of a taxi, and the incentive did not work for me,” said Ramu Kulkarni, a driver in Hyderabad who used the ride-hire app.
In another instance, a 20-year-old driver in Mumbai was unhappy with the Uber-related bonuses he received.
“Uber should be doing this for every driver, not just for one,” said Ravi Gupta, a 24-year old driver in Ahmedabad.
Gupta’s complaint was similar to the one made by a 22-year of age driver in the city of Bangalore who had been waiting for a bonus for six months.
Uber did not immediately respond to The Verge’s request for comment.
