The factory will generate 10,000 direct employment, along with additional jobs being created by Ola vendors and suppliers. As per Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO, the Phase 1 will be ready with initial annual capacity of two million around June this year. 

Built over 500 acres in Krishnagiri district in Tamil Nadu, the facility will roll out one scooter every two seconds at full capacity, Aggarwal told the media.
