MP: Kamal Nath govt launches 100 e-rickshaws for unemployed women

In a first such initiative in the state, Chief Minister Kamal Nath launched 100 e-rickshaws for unemployed women under the Madhya Pradesh government’s E-Sawari project.

Under the initiative taken up by Atal Indore City Transport Services Limited (AICTSL), 100 e-rickshaws connecting various areas to i-bus were launched in the state on Saturday.

Each of the 100 e-rickshaws is equipped with facilities such as Wi-Fi, digital payment and mobile charging points. The 100 women, including a physically challenged beneficiary, were trained for over a month. The approximate cost of each rickshaw is Rs 2 lakh, half of which is subsidised.

As quoted in a report of The Indian Express, Urban Development and Housing Minister Jaivardhan Singh said that “Madhya Pradesh is the first state to launch such a scheme meant only for women. He said the government estimates that about 5,000 e-rickshaws will be run by women alone in Indore.”

These e-rickshaws will be monitored by the AiCTSL Control Centre (Transit Management Centre) and e-rickshaw drivers can access supervisors of the respective routes for the convenience. This e-rickshaw will run 85 km after charging for 3 hours.
