Malu Sharma Just like Metro cities now Jammu has e-fleet and commuters can now avail e-booking service for Taxis and Auto-Rickshaws. Taking digital India to next level in Jammu, two youth Prikshit Gupta and Navin Mahajan have started this e-fleet service with initially 40 auto-rickshaws. E-fleet is a ride-hailing mobile application, introduced by a software development and outsourcing company. With this now commuters can get taxis at their doorsteps at no extra charge. With Unlock 1.0, e-fleet service has started and all the safety measures and precautions have been taken to keep the passengers safe. While talking to STATE TIMES, Prikshit Gupta said, “Other platforms charge commissions from drivers, but we don’t. The only thing need to book an auto is to download the app ‘E-fleet’. When a customer opens the app, he/she is shown the mode of transport and drivers available nearby. Simultaneously, an idle driver within the radius of 2 Km is notified and as soon as he confirms the booking from his end, both parties can to see each other’s contact details for calling to coordinate. Then it is the customer who has to confirm the booking. Moreover, the app has an emergency button for both passengers and drivers, which when pressed will alert the people they have added in their emergency call-list. Moreover, there is also a SOS button which directly calls ‘100’if they feel tapped”. He further shared, “E-fleet works on the fares approved by J&K Motor Vehicles Department that is Rs 33 on meter down and Rs 14 per Km. Moreover, we have multiple payment options, such as credit card, debit card, Paytm or even cash. Keeping in view the threat of COVID-19, we are taking all necessary precautions. All auto rickshaws are sanitised daily in the morning. Drivers are provided with sanitizers and there is a sheet partition in between so that there is no direct contact between driver and passenger..” Sanjay Sethi, an auto driver, who has been using the app to get work for nearly a week, shared that being an E-fleet driver has helped him gaining more customers and earning livelihood during this crucial time of COVID. He added, “We take all necessary precautions to ensure safety of passengers. We have separated the cabins and there is no direct contact. Since, this app uses real-time geo-mapping, we can conveniently to follow maps to reach the exact location, and customers get near-to accurate fares in advance.”
