UberSHAAN is aimed at expanding access to economic opportunities and bringing down entry barriers for micro-entrepreneurs.
From providing access to skill development and driver training to the unskilled; to helping trained drivers receive commercial licenses--UberSHAAN will also support entrepreneurial ambitions of licensed drivers through vehicle financing and leasing solutions.
As part of the MoU signed between Maruti and Uber, the two will conduct a 4 month pilot in Delhi/NCR, Hyderabad and Chennai and organise driver training and on-boarding programmes. On completion of training and grant of commercial license, Uber will also support the journey of successful candidates by offering vehicle financing and leasing solutions.
Through its partnership with NSDC, Uber will support driver training at all 158 NSDC training centres nationwide that promote skill building in the automobile sector. Eligible drivers will be offered vehicle financing and leasing solutions from Uber.
