In addition, Ola will also pick it up when you no longer need it. You will not have to pay the concentrator or the corresponding transportation fee..
“We must come together and help our communities during these unprecedented times … We hope this initiative will provide much-needed support during these difficult times and help alleviate pain and anxiety among those affected.” Ola CEO Bhavish Aggarwal wrote on Twitter.
Ola’s O2forIndia initiative starts in Bangalore this week and the company has plans to expand it throughout India in the coming weeks. “Through this initiative, we will provide oxygen concentrators to those who recover or isolate themselves at home, right on their doorstep.
