Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people across the globe are following the social distancing norms. However, to avoid direct contact between employees and customers, a petrol pump in Pune has launched the 'Atmanirbhar campaign'.
According to a report by Hindustan Times, this campaign will allow the customers to fill fuel in their vehicles on their own while the employees will guide them with the process. First, the customers will be asked to sanitise their hands and then they will be allowed to proceed with further steps of filling fuel in the vehicle.
One of the customers stated, "We really appreciate this initiative but the workers at petrol pump need to train us for this. It is a good step taken for the safety of customers and the employees at the petrol pump. As all kinds of people come to the petrol pump, the risk of being infected with the coronavirus remains high."
Speaking about the initiative to combat Covid-19, Sanket Varude, a petrol pump manager, said, "Under this initiative, the customers will themselves refuel tanks of their vehicle. In the ongoing situation of coronavirus, both the customer and salesperson are afraid of coming in contact with an infected person. Therefore, we thought of this idea of self-fueling. Our salesperson will be there to assist the customers."
In other recent news, Maharashtra Home Minister, Anil Deshmukh, recently inaugurated the Segway electric scooters for police personnel at Marine Drive, Mumbai. These are the first 15 of the 50 two-wheeled, self-balancing personal transporters'. These Segways will also be introduced for police personnel in suburban Bandra, Juhu and Versova areas. Anil Deshmukh wants the Maharashtra police force to be equipped with technology on par with global standards.
Also, the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority Of India (IRDAI) has decided to withdraw the three-year third-party motor insurance policy order since August 1, 2020. The IRDAI stated that the distribution of package policies has its challenges due to affordability factors for a large section of vehicle owners in India.
Thoughts About Atmanirbhar Campaign
Well, this campaign will be really useful as the people will be filling fuel on their own (as it happens internationally) and this process will really help follow the social distancing norms.
