Uber’s Indian rival Ola being probed for ‘predatory pricing’ | PCWorld

Ola, India’s largest ride-hailing service, is being probed by the Competition Commission of India for ‘predatory pricing,’ including for allegedly spending more than its revenue per trip by offering incentives to customers and drivers.

The probe reflects the fierce competition in the Indian ride-hailing market, with a number of well-funded companies investing large sums to get a quick lead in the market.

Fast Track has also charged Ola with creating barriers for new entrants.
