Gurgaon-based carpooling app Orahi has acquired Odd-Even.com, a ride-sharing website started by 13-year-old Akshat Mittal, for an undisclosed amount in cash. Mittal has been inducted on the company’s advisory board as a technical and domain expert.
Mittal, a student of Amity International School in Noida, started Odd-Even.com in December 2015 after the Delhi government announced an initiative where vehicles with odd and even numbers were allowed to run only on alternate days. The government’s move was part of efforts to check pollution in the city.
In an interview with VCCTV, Arun Bhati, co-founder, Orahi and Akshat Mittal share their future plans and details of the acquisition.
