Fake taxi driver, Uber driver, taxi broker, taxi-hailing app.
How to become one of them?
A lot of people do.
And they do it all the time.
They can be spotted driving around the city, selling rides, or in some cases even trying to sell them.
The phenomenon is quite a common one in India.
The state of Kerala, for instance, has a number of taxi brokers that are operating in its city.
There is a big gap between the real world taxi business and the ones being advertised on the internet.
And if the fake taxi operator does not have a formal license, he or she does not even need a vehicle, as the licence does not require proof of any type of income.
A car licence can be issued on a whim, and this loophole allows them to operate.
There are many more examples.
In India, the country with the most taxis per capita, there are more than 10,000 licensed taxi-drivers, according to data compiled by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MRTHK).
The figures are based on registrations issued in 2013, which is around the time Uber and other taxi-sharing apps like Grab started to roll out in the country.
It has become a lucrative business in the Indian market.
But in Kerala, there is a gap between legitimate taxi-rides and the fake ones.
The number of registered taxi-driver licensees in the state stood at 6,08,879 in 2016.
These are the registered taxi drivers who are authorised to sell taxi rides, and who are in the employ of companies like Uber.
The official registration number for the year 2017 was 6,621,744, which stands for the number of licenses issued in the last year.
The figures for 2017 will be released later.
The official numbers also show that there are almost 3,000 taxi-car companies in the Kerala area, with a total of 4,000-5,000 drivers.
The companies are licensed by the state government and they have to file their registration with the MRTHK, which provides a clear indication of the number and type of taxi services they offer.
There are about 3,500 licensed cab-drivers in Kerala and the number varies according to the state.
However, most of them are from the Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Odisha states.
These three states account for about 75 percent of the total number of licensed taxi drivers.
In the city of Kochi, the taxi-driving industry has been thriving since the late 1990s.
The city, with an average population of about 10,500, has more than 300 taxi-buses and taxi brokers operating in the area.
The number of drivers is around 10 to 12 and most of these are from Odisha, the only state in the region.
There is a problem, however, in Kochi.
There were only about 1,300 licensed taxi companies in 2011, and the city is currently experiencing a major increase in the number.
There have been several incidents of fake taxi drivers being hired by the taxi broker’s operators to work as taxi drivers in the city.
The driver is then supposed to take the customers from the taxis to the cab company.
The drivers are supposed to do the work at the end of the day, but in some instances, the drivers have been seen taking their customers to their homes, where the taxi is being driven around the neighbourhood, and they are waiting for customers.
The driver usually does not see the customers at all.
The taxis are usually full.
The car is empty.
There has been an increase in fake taxi operators, and now the city’s police is investigating the cases, said M Venugopal, Deputy Commissioner of Police in Kochin.
The police said they have arrested several drivers, and are looking into their alleged involvement in a case of theft of vehicles.
