How to do it :

  • First uninstall the official whatsapp application
  • Download whatsapp from play store and install it
  • Disable messaging services (Enable Flight Mode)
  • Open whatsapp application and insert your number. (Whatsapp will not able to send the message to it server to verify as you have enable flight mode in your mobile)

Top E- Wallets in India : Key features and Comparison


What is being described as the boldest move in the history of Indian economy to curb the evil menaces of black money, the announcement of demonetisation by Prime Minister Mr. Modi has taken everybody by storm .  The decision to demonetise Rs 500 & 1000 notes and  only currency values with denomination of Rs 100 and below being accepted, people are resorting more towards online banking & online payments to manage the expenses of day to day.

With no cash to spend, ATMs running out of money, E-wallets are the one who are flattening bigger and bigger . The gala has begun for digital wallets with the announcement of demonetisation , many of them witnessing massive rise in the number of downloads . Wallets like Paytm & Ola Money has grown by 300% & 1500% respectively . The average number of transactions has grown from 3 to 18.

Chart below depicts the growth rate of Paytm 




Paytm has grown from 50 million users to 150 million within a span of 10 days. Similar growth trend has been seen in other major digital wallets like Freecharge, Mobikwik , thus is the effect of demonetisation .

Comparative study of major E-wallets in India.

The table below would help you to understand  about the major E-wallets available below in India, their usages , benefits & advantages.

Mobile wallet providers are now becoming kind of mini banks. It won’t be a surprise if they get their banking license (payment banks) and walk on the lines of Airtel and Paytm . The financial institutions have realised the potential of mobile wallets that is why each of them is coming with their own wallets.

Ola offline

Ola offline : Internet connection is not needed to book a cab

Ola offline

One of India’s most popular taxi aggregator, recently launched an Offline feature for its user.  This new feature would allow the users to surf through the Ola App to book a cab without internet. The launch of this feature from Ola would be available in 4 metro cities as of now. The launch will be, if not, a test to check the compatibility  of the whole offline spectrum of this feature. If successful, the featured would be then escalated to all the 102 cities where the company operates as of now. Ankit Bhati, CTO & co-founder of the company, said that the feature was piloted in several smaller markets like Indore and Nagpur, and saw significant acceptance among the consumers in these cities over the past few weeks. The key feature of this new add-on would be the availability to book a cab while being offline on your smartphone.

Why this feature?

The most important question here is that why the company has launched such a feature? Well, to answer that, we have to look at the problem which people have while booking a cab for themselves. A large part of smartphone internet users run their phones on wi-fi, however, to book an Ola, one must have a data package on their phone. So, the solution was to provide the offline feature. This is also a solution to the people who are out of their internet data package while booking out for a cab via Ola.

About Ola :

ANI Technologies Pvt. Ltd., operating under the trade name Ola, is an Indian online transportation network company. Ola was founded as an online cab aggregator in Mumbai, but is now based out of Bangalore.

It was founded on 3 December 2010 by Bhavish Aggarwal (currently CEO) and Ankit Bhati. As of 2014, the company had expanded to a network of more than 200,000 cars across 100 cities. In November 2014, Ola expanded to incorporate autos on-trial basis in Bangalore. Post the trial phase, Ola Auto expanded to other cities like Delhi, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad and Kolkata starting December 2014. In December 2015, Ola expanded its auto services in Chandigarh, Indore, Jaipur and Guwahati, Visakhapatnam. Ola is valued at $5 billion as of September 2015.
