Hi guys
so past few days i was doing some number crunching and this is my observation.
ola cabs charge customer's 14rs/km and they take 15% from the driver that means driver gets 12rs/km. So if the car is driven for 5000km/month this would be the breakup
total earning-60000
total expences
Emi-11000/month
driver salary-12000/month
monthly maintenance-3000
monthly fuel cost(if driven 5000km)-17000
balance-17000
so now i am more confused how the driver's are making that much money,obviously if car would be driven more the profit would also be more, but what's the average running would be. My calculation can be totally wrong but this is what i came to after researching about this a lot.

I have a doubt on your calculation, 5000km/month, i think its not easy to achieve for a cab driver

Yes i know thats why i am confused, because if the cab is running any less then that the owner would be hardly making any profit.

I still doubt that cab drivers can make 90k/ month
