This will be officially called the ‘Modi Rickshaw’, as the concept is the brain-child of the Gujarat chief minister himself.
If ‘Dial 108′ changed the face of medical emergency services in the state, the state government is now set to float a ‘Dial-a-Rick’ concept sometime later this year.
The vehicles will have a distinct colour scheme, different than the green-yellow combo of the existing three-wheelers.

The government will offer subsidies to owner-driver ricksha-wallahs, who will be trained as tourist guides.
