Ola cab company has offered benefits up to Rs one lakh to its partner drivers who would be switching to CNG vehicles. The company has made this decision after a Supreme Court ruling that made it mandatory for all commercial vehicles to ply only on CNG.
“As part of ‘Ola Green Pragati Week’ from August 26 to September 1, Ola will bring together driver-partners as well as financing and car manufacturer partners under one roof,” Ola said in a statement.
“Drivers in the city to purchase a new CNG car with benefits of up to Rs.one lakh, including a discount of up to Rs. 60 thousand in partnership with dealers of manufacturers like Maruti, Hyundai, and Tata Motors,” it added.
“We are committed to CNG adoption in the state of Delhi. The intention behind coming up with this scheme is to create an opportunity for all those drivers who are planning to buy new cars or willing to exchange their old cars to consider buying a CNG vehicle and contribute to a clean and green Delhi,” said Deep Singh, Ola Business Head (North).
With this, livelihoods of thousands of driver partners on the Ola platform will be protected and they can continue to work as entrepreneurs with Ola, he added.
Ola has about 25,000 cabs in Delhi which are registered on its platform.
