According to media reports the number of taxis in goa has increased 20 times in the last 10 years and now the taxi drivers are finding it difficult to get any work. In 2007, the number of taxis in goa was less than 1000, however in 2017, there are more than 20000 registered taxis in Goa, as the government was very liberal in giving licenses as part of the self employment scheme.
Earlier taxi drivers were making two or three trips a day from the airport, However in 2017, at the airport, many taxi drivers have to wait for up to 6 hours to get a passenger. Also due to demonetization the number of tourists in goa is lower, as there is less black money floating around, and so there are fights between taxi drivers for passengers.
If the taxi rates were reasonable, more people would use taxis in goa.
