Former group general counsel (GC) of resources giant Vedanta Limited, Nitin Banerjee, has joined the Ola group, which is fast becoming a technology conglomerate, as its group GC.

We had reported his departure from Vedanta late last month.

He’ll no doubt be having his hands full at ANI Technologies Pvt Ltd: the group includes the original cab hailing and sharing aggregator Ola Fleet, and after a bevvy of acquisitions also Ola Mobility, Electric, Financial Services, food technology with Foodpanda and interests in several other sectors.

Banerjee is a 2001 Lucknow University grad and before joining Vedanta in 2017, had headed legal at Vodafone and British Gas and had been a partner at J Sagar Associates (JSA).

We have reached out to him and Ola for comment.

According to our deals database, Ola has been a regular client of Khaitan & Co, as well as J Sagar Associates (JSA).
