inDrive has announced that it will begin registering electric vehicles (EV) on its platform in Kolkata soon.
According to Mohan Pradhan, inDrive’s business development manager for India, and Bangladesh, the registration process has already begun in Delhi, where 100-odd driver-partners have already signed up.
He stated that inDrive began operations in India in 2018 and is now available in 12 locations across the country including Kolkata.
“We have started taking registrations for EVs in Delhi and 100 driver-partners have been already associated. We will also start taking registrations for EVs in Kolkata and other cities shortly,” Pradhan continued.
Pradhan stated that over 10,000 rides are done every day in Kolkata and that the figure is approximately 50,000 in other parts of India where it currently operates.
He claims that, in contrast to other ride-hailing service providers now accessible, inDrive charges the lowest commission per rise from the driver-partners and allows the freedom to the driver and passenger to negotiate the tariff.
InDrive will soon begin talks with the insurance carriers to provide coverage for drivers and passengers during rides.
