India’s smartest cab service Ola has finally entered into an understanding with the Odisha’s commerce and transport department that it will hire and train 2500 drivers in Odisha.
“After completion of training, Ola would be handing them vehicles to help them become entrepreneurs. In this fiscal, Ola will hire 2,500 such skilled youths”, said Sanjay Singh, secretary with Odisha’s skill development & technical education department.
Ola is not only expanding its footprint in Odisha in a big way but also looking to have a pool of 10,000 drivers in the state in next 2 years much more than UBER which is only present in Bhubaneswar.
As far as the hiring is concern, it’s fine. But we all know that Ola doesn’t have their own cars and if the customer will be harmed or misbehaved then we don’t know if only Ola is responsible or the driver? But if the car or driver will be harmed, Ola doesn’t have to take the responsibility on themselves but instead pass it on to the private car owner. Pretty Smart!!
But people would more prefer if Ola will make a more better guideline for the drivers and recruit them for attitude and train for skill! So, that riders can have a stress-free ride.
