Social Media Poster: Sustainable Transport - Share Autos

Motorised paratransit such as autorickshaws and share auto-rickshaws are popular across India. They are perfect for short-distance commutes and reaching major public transits. They are fast, easy and plentiful. Regularising this sector by providing route maps, pick up/drop off points and parking spaces, will fully tap into the potential of these modes.

Social Media Poster: Road Safety - Household Burdens of Road Crashes

Tamil Nadu shows the highest post-crash costs incurred due to income loss. The extra costs on post-crash care or the victim’s funeral destabilises family budgets and increases Out Of Pocket Expenditure, a burden felt more severely by low income households. This calls for implementation of the interim compensation as per Section 164A of the MVAA, 2019. PC: Ayaneshu Bhardwaj on Unsplash

When #NetBanking, always double check the #URL. Fraudsters can set up websites with URLs that sound very similar to your bank's. Also look for the lock symbol (which means that the website you are using is secured with a digital certificate) & the 's' in https:// (which means that your communication with the bank is encrypted). #DigitalIndia

Mobility options are as diverse as our country! Paratransit fills a gap by connecting us to public transport or by providing transport in localities where buses and trains don't venture. Whether you call them auto-rickshaws, share autos, chakdas, minivans, electric rickshaws or minibuses, they all help make public transport more #accessible. Which ones have you used? Comment below.

Crashes on Indian roads claim about 150,000 lives & disable about 750,000 people yearly. Social welfare losses at an individual level makes the entire family vulnerable. Factoring these impacts is necessary to institutionalise social security.
