While Bhavish Aggarwal focuses his energies on: Ola Electricthe ride-hailing platform ola plans to lay off up to 500 employees in various departments as it seeks to cut costs and streamline operations during the ongoing financing winter.



According to reliable sources, SoftBank-backed Ola has asked senior executives to identify employees on their teams on a performance basis who could be asked to leave.

The company is reportedly looking to “leaner and consolidated teams” to keep its “strong profitability intact”.

Ola has stopped so far Ola Cafefood panda, Ola Foods and now Ola Dash.

“Ola has reassessed its priorities and has decided to discontinue Ola Dash, its high-speed trading business. Ola will also refocus its Ola Cars business to focus more on strengthening its go-to-market strategy for Ola Electric,” the company had said. in a statement.

It added that Ola Cars’ infrastructure, technology and capabilities “will be leveraged to grow Ola Electric’s sales and service network.”

Ola now wants to invest more in its electric car, cell manufacturing and financial services business.

Ola Electric, amid several high-profile exits, is also under scrutiny for faulty batteries in its electric two-wheelers, alongside other EV players such as Okinawa AutotechPure EV, Jitendra Electric Vehicles and Boom Motors, by the government.

Alarmed by the ongoing EV fire incidents, the Center has now sent warnings to EV manufacturers, warning them why no criminal action should be taken against them for supplying faulty electric two-wheelers to the public.

The EV makers have until the end of July to respond extensively to the announcements.
