Minister for Environment J. Krishna Palemar said on Tuesday that taxi drivers in Dakshina Kannada were providing honest service.

He was speaking at the 40th annual conference of Dakshina Kannada Taxi Men's and Maxi Cab Association at the Town Hall here.

He said the problem of lack of parking zones for taxis in the city would be solved once a bus stand at Pumpwell came up. The association urged the Minister to take action against unauthorised taxis plying in the district.

N. Yogish Bhat and K. Abhayachandra Jain, MLAs, were present.
