In Tamil Nadu, Ola has a manufacturing unit. Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman, and CEO of Ola revealed on 13th September that the company’s Future factory will be run entirely by women. Ola Future factory, according to Bhavish, will be the world’s largest all-women factory. He went on to say that Aatmanirbhar Bharat requires Aatmanirbhar women.
Aatmanirbhar women are needed in Aatmanirbhar Bharat! We’re excited to announce that the Ola Future factory will be run entirely by women, with a workforce of 10,000+ at full capacity! It will be the world’s largest factory run entirely by women, he said.
He also uploaded a video of the first batch of women workers working in the factory. According to Aggarwal, when the Future plant reaches full capacity, it will employ over 10,000 women, making it the world’s largest women-only factory and the world’s only all-women automotive production facility.
Providing economic possibilities to women improves not just their lives, but also the lives of their families and the entire community. Statistics show that simply ensuring women’s equality in the workforce can boost India’s GDP by 27%, he stated.
Ola is launching a range of methods to develop a more inclusive workforce and promote economic possibilities for women across the board, he said.
According to Aggarwal, the firm has invested time in training and upskilling people in fundamental manufacturing capabilities, and they will be in charge of the whole production of every vehicle produced at the Ola Future facility.
Last year, Ola announced an INR 2,400-crore investment in Tamil Nadu to build its first electric scooter manufacturing. The company, which claims to be the world’s largest scooter manufacturing facility, announced that it will begin with a 10-lakh annual production capacity and then expand it up to 20 lakhs in the first phase, depending on market demand.
Ola Electric said that once completed, its plant will have an annual capacity of one crore units, which is 15% of the world’s total two-wheeler manufacturing. On August 15, the firm revealed the Ola S1 electric scooter, which comes in two versions: S1 and S1 Pro, priced at INR 99,999 and INR 1,29,999.
While the sale was supposed to begin on September 8, it was postponed by a week to September 15 due to “technical issues” in making the purchase website available to clients.
