Meanwhile, a recent report said that Ola plans to lay off up to 500 employees across departments to cut costs and streamline operations amid the ongoing funding winter.
According to reliable sources, SoftBank-backed Ola has asked senior executives to find employees in their teams on a performance basis who can be asked to go.
The company is reportedly looking at “leaner and consolidated teams” to keep its “strong profitability intact”.
