Global tech transport company Uber has signed a pact with central government-backed Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC), the firm announced in Bengaluru on February 22.

“We are excited to take our first step through this MoU with ONDC to explore how we can accelerate our ambition to make Uber a platform for every Indian’s daily mobility needs,” Uber India and South Asia, President, Prabhjeet Singh said.

In a conversation with Infosys cofounder Nandan Nilekani on building population scale technology, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said global companies and governments can learn from the scale and ambition of India’s digital public infrastructure.

 “Our vision for Uber in India is to serve the mobility needs of all Indians. This is in line with ONDC’s objective of democratising digital commerce.”

“As the Open Network is continuously evolving, MTT (Mobility, Transport and Travel) is certainly a critical sector for us. Different players together on the network foster innovation and newer business models. Today’s MoU is a major step forward, and one we hope will enable a diverse range of mobility solutions to benefit every Indian,” ONDC MD and CEO T Koshy said.

Festive offer

The announcement by ride-hailing platform comes after the company’s rival in India, Ola, joined the government-backed initiative in September last year to provide food delivery services.
