How OLA is cheating Indian Customers with Dynamic Pricing Policy

Leave a Comment
OLA cabs that are known for their Cheap rides have started giving shock to their customers whenever they come to know they have been charged beyond their exception. We have seen their fancy advertisement that claims them to be cheapest taxi Provider with fare as low as 8 rs per km. but customers are feeling cheated and Shocked when they have to pay Rs 706 for 16 km , that is around 44 Rs per km for Indica Ride.




This is a trick by OLA team that is surely beneficial for them but Customers have to Pay more money for even small distances.While booking Cabs using application, a Pop up appears that reads as Peak Pricing Charge (2x or 2.2x or even more)  will apply and Customers usually in hurry never thinks much that it can cost 3 times and normally clicks Yes button and falls in OLA pricing trap.





Check out above Fare details. A 16 Km Indica  ride costs Rs 706 , that is Rs 44 per Km. Isn't it too much.


I have been frequent user of OLA cab, and a couple of days back they overcharged me with Over Pricing Trap and since then, I have to think twice before booking OLA cab.

Here is my Fare bill :



OLA charged me Rs 505 for 14.8 km ride that costs Rs 34 per km.The ride usually costs Rs 250 - 300 but this time i have to pay twice amount, that is  too much high and their Peak Pricing System is too complex and cheats the Customer.

I Called OLA customer representative regarding billing problem, but they replied peak pricing is to ensure that there are more cabs on the street to meet additional demand.
I don't understand this concept, if they have to provide their services 24x7 , it is upto OLA team to manage Shortage of Cabs, Why do Customers pay triple Price ? and practically i don't think there is any shortage of Cabs in Delhi/NCR and peak pricing is an evil idea of OLA to fool and cheat customers by overcharging them.



This Policy is only benefiting OLA and if this Pricing policy will continue, OLA will surely loose major share of its customers and will drift towards another Players available in the market.


Think twice, before Booking OLA cabs.

Why Whatsapp Voice Calling Feature is a Fail

Leave a Comment
One of the anticipated feature Calling via Whatsapp rolled out couple of months back, it is a useful tool to make Voice call by simply by tapping Phone icon.

Previously, Call icon on whatsapp dialed a normal Call to the contact, but with the introduction of integrated Whatsapp Call feature, Calls are made using Internet and Data Connection is needed for the same on the both ends.

The feature is not much popular and used by People and there are several reasons listed below.




Whatsapp Call feature has not been much Popular and People are not much using this feature (atleast in India). It is due to:


1) Though some of the Mobile Networks have launched 4G services, but still there is major portion of Internet users that are still using 2G internet and Voice calls using 2G data are really annoying.

2) Also, there can be Voice Lag, when two users are having different internet Connection speed. If one of the user is using 2G internet and other is using 3G internet, there can be Voice lag of 5 seconds.


If you are not getting above, it reads as Worst thing about Whatspp Calling feature is "  I am not able to hear you, Say it again ", Might be the 2G - 3G lag :D


3) When we click the Call icon, Call initiates in a second, even you don't get time to cut the call, if call button is pressed by mistake. No confirmation message appears, like Call this Number. Yes or Cancel. This feature should have been added to Calling feature.
Attachment icon to send any media (pics or Video) is placed just right to call button and there are chances that you can accidentally press Call button.

Sometime, it becomes annoying due to Voice clarity issue and many times, you can hear you voice echoing back.

There are some better apps like Viber that offers much better Voice calling quality.

#GotFinale : People reaction on Twitter after Game of thrones Season 5 Finale

Leave a Comment
Warning: This post contains spoilers about Sunday's Game of thrones finale.






HBO's drama's GOT 5th season ended  shockingly as many of the biggest stars were killed off.

Episode starts on a bad note for Stannis who receives a news that half of the men deserted him and later found his wife Selyse hanging from a tree, Stannis Baratheon marched on to winterfell but his army was outnumbered and the Boltons defeated them and in the end Stannis was killed by Brienne of Tarth's sword but we didn't see the final blow.



Sansa Stark, tried to send the signal to save herself but sadly the person who was supposed to save Sansa was busy somewhere else, Luckily Theon saves her from Myranda who was trying to kill her. Theon and Sansa jumps from castle walls of winterfell, dead or alive not shown. We hope the know down the walls was thick.




Myrcella Baratheon, who was released from Dorne, seems to be poisoned.

Arya undergoes some physical transformation, in the end Arya looses her sight and turns blind, not a happy ending again for Arya as well.



Daenerys Targaryen:

Daenerys and Dorgon are shown on the mountain,  Dorgon is exhausted and in no mood to take Daenerys back to Mareen, Daeneys goes out to hunt something for supper, later she was surrounded by hundred of Dothraki warriors.

Again it ended on a ambiguous note, whether its good or bad for her.


Cersei Lannister:


Finally Cersei accepted her sins Later, Those nuns stole the show with Shame Shame :D




Jon Snow:

Olly comes to Jon snow with the news that someone knows his uncle Benjen Stark, Snow unaware that it is trap rushes to meet the person, Then Jon Snow is stabbed and killed by his own brothers of Night watch. Jon falls on the ground dead and episode ends.


He's not dead, he's just resting — maybe - maybe not  ?





People didn't expected show to end up like this.
