Bhavish Aggarwal Unveils ‘Krutrim AI,’ India’s AI Chatbot to Rival Global Counterparts

New Delhi: Bhavish Aggarwal, founder and chairman of Ola, introduced India’s own artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot, ‘Krutrim AI,’ on Monday, aiming to compete with OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Gemini.

The AI chatbot is now entering its public beta phase, marking a significant milestone in Ola’s technological endeavors.

Aggarwal took to X to announce the launch, stating, “As promised, starting the @Krutrim AI public beta rollout today. This is a start for us and our first-generation product. Lots more to come, and this will also improve significantly as we build on this base. Do give us your feedback.”

He highlighted that Krutrim AI is designed to assist users in more than 10 Indian languages, including English, Hindi, Tamil, Bengali, Marathi, Kannada, Gujarati, and even Hinglish (a blend of Hindi and English).

“Krutrim marks the dawn of a new era in the AI computing stack for our nation. We will aim to innovate alongside the world and define future paradigms,” Aggarwal affirmed.

The launch follows Krutrim’s remarkable achievement as the country’s fastest unicorn and the first AI unicorn in India, securing $50 million in equity investment at a valuation of $1 billion in its initial funding round. Matrix Partners India and other prominent investors led the funding, reflecting a strong vote of confidence in Ola’s foray into the AI space.
