Ola charged Rs 149 crore from passenger for 300 meter

Ola has charged Rs 149 crore from a passanger who travelled for 300 meters. Mumbai's Sushil Narsian booked a cab from his residence in Mulund West to Vakola Market but the driver could not locate his house via maps because his phone stopped working. So, Mr Narsian started walking towards the driver but by the time he reached the pick-up point, the driver had cancelled the ride.

When he tried booking another cab, he was unable to book another cab because it was showing he had an outstanding amount of Rs. 1,49,10,51,648 which is over Rs. 149 crore. Ola also deducted the 127 rupees he already had in this mobile wallet for a 300-metre ride.

After the issue has been raised to Ola, the company informed him that it was a technical glitch. They refunded his money and fixed the 149-crore-anomaly within two hours.
