The business tycoon Anand Mahindra said in his tweet that ” One silver lining of Covid19 is that it’s dramatically accelerating the creation of a Swachh Bharat.” His post was accompanied with a video that shows a special auto rickshaw that has several amenities including a hand washing unit.
The video, a little over a minute long, shows all the features of this special vehicle. Along with the hand washing unit, complete with a soap dispenser, you can also see potted plants and two separate bins labelled ‘wet waste’ and ‘dry waste’.
A board inside the rickshaw reads, “Mumbai’s first home system auto rickshaw providing excellent service”.
The points listed below detail a special discount for senior citizens. It adds that the vehicle is also equipped with a phone charging unit, drinking water, a cooler fan along with advice on staying fit. It also mentions that newly married couples can ride the auto rickshaw for free.
The video also shows the BMC Covid-19 helpline number on the auto rickshaw which also provides Wi-Fi.
