Coronavirus Outbreak: This man's modified e-rickshaw has impressed Anand Mahindra
The viral video shows an e-rickshaw with a wall that divides the seats in the vehicle making it efficient to accommodate four people
Business magnate Anand Mahindra is known for sharing posts that showcase innovative techniques that people use to make life easy. The chairman of Mahindra and Mahindra Group has recently tweeted a video of a man’s e-rickshaw and how it helps practice social distancing amid the Coronavirus outbreak. He praised the idea in his tweet in which he also asks one on his teams to take a leaf from.
The viral video shows an e-rickshaw with a wall that divides the seats in the vehicle making it efficient to accommodate four people. The wall will not allow the customers to have any physical contact with each other, while they ride in the rickshaw. “The capabilities of our people to rapidly innovate & adapt to new circumstances never ceases to amaze me,” Mahindra writes in the tweet. He tags Rajesh Jejurikar, the Executive Director of Auto and Farm Sectors in Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd, and writes, “we need to get him as an advisor to our R&D & product development teams!”

You should launch a 10year close ended innovation fund. India has abundant innovators if only they could get some support.— Cold Oatter (@cold_oatter) April 24, 2020
