Gilli Chai, a chain of tea outlets in the city, launched its first mobile tea service in association with MAUTO, which makes electric autorickshaws.

This is a win-win for both the parties as customers will get tea on-the-go and these women will earn a livelihood,” said Mohamed Rahmatullah, MD of Gilli Chai.
The company aims to have 50 retrofitted autorickshaws on the road in a year.
