By: GizBot Bureau

    Taxi hailing app Ola today said it will offer benefits worth up to Rs 1 lakh to enable its driver partners to switch to CNG vehicles. The move will help the Bengaluru-based firm comply with a Supreme Court ruling that says commercial vehicles can not ply in Delhi unless converted to the single fuel mode of CNG.

    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).

A majority of cars on the Ola platform in Delhi are already on CNG. In the last one week, Ola added about 3,000 CNG vehicles to its fleet in the city. The SoftBank-backed company has about 25,000 cabs in Delhi which are registered on its platform.
