Magic Sewa has been founded by Rakesh Agarwal, a social activist who has been running Nyayabhoomi, an NGO, since 2002 which is focused on RTI and transport policy. It is no secret that the passengers endure pain while using taxi or auto service. What Rakesh witnessed, studied in depth and later fought against was the victimisation of the entire taxi and auto drivers community due to bad regulations, poor implementation and exploitative environment.Thus emerged Magic Sewa which is sharply focused on three things:-
- High quality, secure and affordable taxi and auto services
- Welfare and upward mobility of drivers and their families
- Responsibility towards society and total compliance of law
Magic Sewa is looking to make a difference in an industry beset with non-reliability, non- transparent pricing, passenger safety concerns, drivers behavioural issues and legal entanglements. In the long run, the company envisions redefining mobility of both passengers and goods from the perspective of accessibility, affordability, traffic congestion and protection of environment through optimised use of vehicles.
The company has two immediate term objectives
QUALITY TAXI-AUTO SERVICE
To offer secure, reliable and responsible auto and taxi services which are easily accessible at affordable prices
UPLIFTMENT OF DRIVERS
To ensure a life of dignity, financial security and future full of hope for the drivers community
