Community / Society Service:
Currently getting an ambulance on time is a major issue. It has been observed that ambulance operators charge the patient on an Ad hoc basis, the more urgent the need higher the charges. Their platform will ensure that everyone will have access to the Ambulance service at any time of the day/night. They will provide the nearest available ambulance in the shortest possible time at minimum costs. This will help all the patients to get medical help as soon as possible, saving lives in certain cases. During the pandemic time, they established DIAL4242 as a dependable brand for medical transportation. Even Mumbai police have diverted most of the queries reaching them related to medical transportation to DIAL4242. They raised funds using crowdfunding platforms during the pandemic period and used those funds to heavily subsidize the ambulance charges for the needy section of society. Every month they spend certain funds subsidizing ambulance trips for the economically weaker section of society.
