Ola CEO Bhavish Aggarwal supports Narayan Murthy’s 70-Hour Work week Advice

Bhavish Aggarwal, CEO of Ola, which provides cab services through the app, has supported Infosys founder Narayan Murthy’s advice of working 70 hours a week. Aggarwal said that he works seven days a week and 20 hours a day.

Last year, there was a lot of debate on Narayana Murthy’s advice of working 70 hours a week. Many people opposed it. There were some people in its support as well. Many business owners agreed on the need to increase productivity. Agarwal said, “I fully support this advice of Murthy for the youth.” About joining the company after being separated from the functioning of Infosys, Agarwal said, “I think he had to come back considering the condition of the company. After his return, he was successful in bringing the company back to a strong position.” Narayana Murthy started Infosys in 1981 with the help of his six software professionals. Nandan M Nilekani was also included among these software professionals.

Recently Ola has created its own mapping service. Earlier it was using Google Maps. Recently Ola left Microsoft’s Azure platform. Ola competes with Uber in the country. The company has said that by leaving the Google Maps service it will save about Rs 100 crore annually.

Agarwal had said in a post on social media platform X, “After leaving Azure last month, we have completely exited Google Maps. We used to spend around Rs 100 crore on it. This expenditure has come down to zero by shifting to our in-house Ola Maps service.” The company’s electric vehicle unit Ola Electric has intensified its efforts to develop solid-state batteries for its electric scooters. Agarwal had said that Ola’s own cells can be used in the company’s electric scooters from the beginning of next year. The company is setting up a factory for this in Tamil Nadu.
