    Dear Brothers and Sisters of Bihar,

    This is a article appeared in ECONOMIST website.

    Rickshaws in Patna
    Three wheels good
    Oct 21st 2010, 18:05 by A.R. | PATNA

    BIHAR, India’s poorest state, has never been an easy place to do business. But with its GDP said to be growing by a merry 11% each year, more outsiders are eager to try. A few years ago there were one or two daily flights from Delhi; now there are seven or eight, most of them pretty full. Yet not much is moving fast on the ground. Step off your plane in Patna, the state capital with over a million residents, and you are lucky to find a taxi to the city. At Patna's plushest hotel (perhaps an overstatement) renting a set of wheels proved impossible on some days this week (on another, more fortuitously, your correspondent rode around in a splendid white Ambassador car, a 1940s-style beast of a vehicle usually favoured by elderly officials).

    A few horse-drawn carts are still evident on the streets, along with throngs of bicycle rickshaws with tinkling bells, but the latter seem only to ply set routes. Auto-rickshaws (auto-tuks, the equivalent of the tuk-tuks of Thailand) honk endlessly and spew blue exhaust across the city, but it’s tricky to persuade a driver to change his route, at least if you are not fluent in Hindi. So all praise to the latest innovation to reach Patna: the metered auto-tuk. You can book from a central office, let the meter tick along quietly and explain to your driver to cut across town. Then sit back and marvel as he drives through the crowds, the exhaust and the swirling traffic and takes you directly where you want to go. A modern marvel.

    I am a director of Smart Commuting Services Pvt. Ltd., the company that runs this service in Patna, under the branding of EASY AUTO.

    We started this service in Bangalore and were called in to start in Patna by the Government. I have to say that my experience in Patna, in terms of the cooperation that we received from the bureaucracy in Bihar was amazing.

    In Bihar, things get done at the wink of an eye hood, whether it is for permissions to start a pre-paid auto stands or to get an autorickshaw permit.

    Kudos to Nitish and all the very best for the next term. We are working with the Government to make it a project of approx 5 million USD.

    Banks are ready to lend and Government is ready to guarantee the bank on their exposure, on the condition the project beneficiaries will be from lower castes and BPL families.

    My appeal to all who are from this state to help us by being a part of the same. We are looking for funds from all parts of the world. We promise handsome returns and also, you can be proud that you too are a part of the "CHANGE" in BIHAR.

    I have decided that being a BIHARI is no more what it used to be and in the long term I don't mind being one.

    If you are touching Patna, I will be delighted to show case our activity.

    Please extend the privilege.

    With Warm Regards,

    Chief Strategist
