Bengaluru, Sept 1: Taxi hailing app Ola on Tuesday said it will provide free medical insurance and health check-ups to its driver partners.
Ola will offer all its drivers a medical cover of Rs two lakh for themselves and their family to cover hospitalisation and other major medical expenses, it said in a statement.
Apart from medical insurance, Ola will also offer free health check-up to drivers every quarter, it added.
While the programmes have already been rolled out in Mumbai and Hyderabad and will be extended to Bangalore, Delhi, Kolkata, Pune and Chennai followed by other cities in the next few weeks.
Over 2.5 lakh drivers on the Ola platform will benefit from this initiative.
In 2014, the Bangaluru-based firm had set aside a fund of Rs 100 crore towards investment in the driver ecosystem to help nurture them as entrepreneurs.
