New Delhi, November 12, 2016: On Tuesday night, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the demonetization of 500-1000 rupee notes, a lot of people all across the country weren’t in the right frame of mind. PM Modi’s fight against the flow of black money, corruption, and terrorism was not appreciated at the first go. Many believed it to be a mere harassment for the common people.

The government of India on the other hand, believed it to be a stern step that was necessary for the better future of the country and common people would understand that.
On the very next day of the announcement, many were out of cash or had very limited cash. It was a difficult time for people all over the country, as people had to bank upon lower currency notes only.

Amid all this chaos, a Delhi-resident Viplav Arora was traveling in an Ola cab and was out of cash (only had Rs 500 notes which were worthless at that point of time). He decided to pay it via Ola Money but when his ride ended, it was little over the amount he had in his Ola account and he was supposed to pay the rest of it in cash, but there was absolutely no other option to pay.

When the driver, Vipin Kumar, came to know about it, he replied, ” Sir baaki k paise rehne dijiye , do paise kam kama lenge ,thodi si takleef hogi or vo to sab ko ho rhi hai, ab sarkaar ke faisley ka samaan krte hue , desh ki tarakki me ye hamara yogdaan hi samjh lenge. Aap befikr hokar apni train lijiye.

(Sir, let it be. Even if I earn a little less money, it’ll be a little bit difficult to manage but it’s the case with everyone. In the honor of the decision government took; consider this as my contribution to the country’s growth. You please go ahead and board your train without any worries)”

“Customers in these cities can book discounted rides using Ola app starting Tuesday,” the city-based online cab aggregator said in a statement here.

The online transportation network company has been operating in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne since it forayed into the island-nation early in 2018.

So far, over 30,000 driver-partners have registered themselves with the company since its launch in Australia on January 30, the statement said.
