At Uber we are committed to providing incredible opportunities for retired Defence personnel. The Indian Air Force and Uber will work closely to get more and more aspiring ex-defence personnel to partner with Uber to take advantage of the amazing entrepreneurial opportunities that our technology provides.

Many of the our current driver partners come from a Defence background. It is amazing to hear them talk about their journey in life. We want to give you a little peak into Uber’s impact on their lives – Read about Arun, a retired life-long military service man and partner driver with Uber Pune. 


Arun spent 26 years of his life in the military. Post retirement he tried to work for a corporate job but did not get the satisfaction and a sense of ownership. Starting with a small car, today, Arun drives his own Innova with Uber and has been able to give quality education to his children. One of his sons is a BMS doctor, other a CA final student and his daughter, an Assistant Engineer with the electricity board.

When asked about his journey he says, “With earnings from Uber, I’m able to pay for my children’s education and motivate them to work for themselves with quality education.”
