OLA Credit – Are you eligible for it? The positive side of Demonetisation

          By now all of us are aware of the word ‘demonetisation’, and the effects on a large number of human beings.

          The negative sides of ‘demonetisation’ will continue to linger for some time.
          A new feature by OLA i.e OLA Credit is the fall-out of demonetisation.  OLA Credit is a Global First in this category. In a taxi ride, physical goods are not exchanged. Hence, in case of a credit facility, in case the debtor defaults, the creditor does not have recourse to physical goods. Hence, the credit facility is offered to selected customers.
