Bike taxi has been initiated by various companies. However, there are various issues as most of the State Governments have not permitted the plying of Bike Taxis as yet. Haryana is probably one of the few Governments which seems to have allowed the same. Kindly check whether Madhya Pradesh Govt. has allowed the same.

Please take note of following -
1. You are required to have a company/LLP/ Partnership being registered for your organization to work on a pan India basis and abroad.
2. You are required to follow the motor vehicles rule and laws of India.
3. You need to have association with insurance companies just like you have in your current setup.
4. You need to comply the Labour and industrial laws to run your setup. Such as registration under minimum wages act, provident fund act, payment of gratuity act, shop and Establishments Act etc are required.
5. You need to comply to the laws of direct and indirect tax laws of India.
Pursue your RTO matter on an offline basis by visiting some officer of that department and asking him/her in person to help you out. I hope this will solve your problem.
