Ola founder and CEO Bhavish Aggarwal has urged Indian developers to stay away from Google Maps by promising a year of free access to Ola Maps, a navigation system that Ola has built, and claimed that Ola Maps is “outperforming” its competitors on several parameters.

New Delhi. Bhavish Aggarwal, founder and CEO of online cab service platform Ola, on Monday urged Indian developers to stay away from Google Maps, promising one year of free access to the navigation system Ola Maps. Along with this, Aggarwal claimed that Ola’s own Ola Maps is ‘outperforming’ its competitors on many parameters. Ola had announced a few days ago that it will now use internally developed navigation tool Ola Maps to guide its taxis instead of Google Maps.

Aggarwal said that for a ‘very long time’, apps developed in Western countries have been used to map India. Such foreign systems fail to recognize unique challenges such as street names, changes in cities and complex traffic. He said that Ola Maps solves these issues with the help of artificial intelligence (AI)-powered and specifically India-centric calculation methods (algorithms) and real-time data collected from millions of vehicles. He said in a post on the social media platform ‘X’, “It is time for Indian developers to move away from Google Maps. All developers will get free access to Ola Maps for one year. ”

He claimed that Ola Maps is outperforming its rivals on location accuracy, search accuracy and other key parameters. He said, “After separating from Azure last month, we are now completely out of Google Maps as well. We used to spend Rs 100 crore annually but we have reduced it to zero by completely shifting to our Ola Maps. “Aggarwal had said in May that Ola will break ties with Microsoft’s Azure cloud and move to its affiliate company Krutrim AI’s cloud service.
