Cab aggregators collaborate with state governments to boost entrepreneurship

Ola and Uber, cab aggregators have signed agreements with Rajasthan government for skill development and creation of entrepreneurial opportunities in the state.

Ola and Uber, cab aggregators have signed agreements with Rajasthan government for skill development and creation of entrepreneurial opportunities in the state. Under the partnership, Ola will team up with the state government to provide skill development for 50,000 men and women over the next five years, stated a PTI report.

It will also be introducing offerings like Ola Autos and Ola Share in the state in coming months. Uber, on its part, will also collaborate on skills training and development programmes in the desert state and create over 35,000 entrepreneurial opportunities.

Additionally, the US-based firm will work with the government to roll out a pilot for its peer-to-peer ride sharing product, Uber said.

"Our vision is to use technology to encourage the spirit of entrepreneurship among the youth of Rajasthan. This initiative will help further expand the ecosystem and make more choice of mobility to the citizens at large," Vasundhara Raje, Chief Minister, Rajasthan told PTI.

In early 2014, Ola had launched services in Rajasthan and operates in Jaipur, Udaipur, Kota, Ajmer and Jodhpur.

"By bringing more mobility use cases onto its app using technology, Ola is looking to serve the 75 million people in the state, giving them instant access to reliable and convenient personal transportation of their choice," Pranay Jivrajka, Chief Operating Officer, Ola told PTI.

The Bengaluru-based taxi hailing service has a similar tie-up in place with the Andhra Pradesh government and has committed an investment of Rs 150 crore to be made over the next three years.

Uber had recently inked an agreement with the Punjab government for running a pilot for peer-to-peer ride sharing. Currently, Uber only has drivers with commercial licences on board in India. In the US, a major chunk of the rides is peer-to-peer that allows private car owners to register on the Uber app and ferry passengers.

"Uber is thrilled to collaborate with the Rajasthan government and contribute to the economic development of the state through skills training and creation of tens of thousands of flexible and sustainable entrepreneurial opportunities," said Gagan Bhatia, Head of Operations and General Manager, North India.
