A driver and his auto-rickshaw are the hot favourites of Mumbai city these days -- courtesy his unique initiative in which he has equipped his vehicle with several basic facilities so that his passengers can enjoy a comfortable ride.
The auto-rickshaw driver goes by the name Satyawan Gite, and he doesn't even charge senior citizens for rides upto one kilometre.
The auto-rickshaw has been equipped with a washbasin, handwash dispenser, mobile phone charging points, plants and a desktop monitor, news agency ANI reports. It also includes a board with the services listed on it.
Because modern problems need modern solutions, they say.
Gite has named the vehicle as 'Mumbai's first home system autorickshaw' and the caption is imprinted on the vehicle.
