have multiple advantages over the conventional metal body e-rickshaws. Apart
from being lightweight, they are maintenance free and can be moulded in a wide
range of light fast and permanent colours. The inherent quality of the plastic

extremely safe and comfortable for passengers, drivers and the road users.

Handa said, “ By conservative estimates, there are over 10 million cycle
rickshaws and 7.5 million auto-rickshaws in the country, which could
potentially be replaced over a period of time. Thus, there is a huge market
opportunity, which theoretically could run into hundreds of thousands of
