Uber India, in an effort to woo more consumers, is also offering three free rides worth Rs. 200 each to new users only. The blog post said, "If you're new to Uber, please download our app, sign up using the promo code 'UBERLOVESINDIA' and get 3 free rides worth Rs. 200 each (New users only, Valid until 30th September, 2014)."

The company further added, "During our testing phase we will have limited cars available; expect longer ETAs than usual. As they say, please 'adjust'. We are working hard to add cars across all four cities and deliver the ultimate Uber experience."

The US-based startup launched its India operations in August last year, starting with Bangalore. Uber soon added more cities and started operating with the regular UberBlack service in Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai, New Delhi and Pune.
