Uber is planning to invest $1 billion in India, with the aim of expanding into more cities. The ride sharing service is aiming to develop its products and payment methods in the country over the next nine months. Uber has only recently been reinstated in New Delhi following its ban last year after a driver was accused of raping a female passenger. Regaining the trust of the Indian market has become a top priority for Uber as the company works to achieve a rate of 1 million trips per day by next year. The private taxi service currently operates in 18 Indian cities.
