The Ola founder Bhavish Aggarwal is a monetary dispute with Ola’s largest stakeholder SoftBank. Steadview also has invested 74 million dollars (524 crores) in Ola.
 
 
Ola is going in funding phase called J round series in which it is luring investors to invest large sums in the company. After Bansal’s investment, the company's total value increased to 5.7 billion (around 40,00 crore rupees).
 
 


 
 
Currently, Ola is operating in more than 100 cities in India. And it is planning to increase its business in Australia, where company is already boasting to hire more than 40,000 drivers.
