SAMARTH: Free Rs 10 lakh insurance! This Tata Motors' welfare scheme is set to change lives of 5 lakh drivers every year
Just imagine what will happen if all the truck drivers stop working for just one day. The result will be a grocery crisis, bank ATM cash crisis, a corporate crisis and what not - in simple words, our lives will come to a standstill. Also, what will happen to these truck drivers' families in case of any mishap - How their pockets will be impacted in case of hospitalisation; who will bear the educational expenses of their children and much more? But, these truckers or truck drivers or commercial vehicle drivers, as we call them, are not even aware of their health, their well-being, future of their families and education of their children.
