To provide some relief from the heat, SBI General Insurance has come up with an unique yet highly effective way. The insurance wing of State Bank of India is offering free Bisleri bottles to Mumbaikars to beat the heat in a mobile van travelling to all areas of the city.
The summer is finally settling in and most parts of the country have been hit by a heatwave. On Monday, temperatures soared to over 44 degrees at many places in Telangana, Odisha and Haryana, with Ramagundam recording the season's highest temperature of 47.2 degrees Celsius. Delhi also reeled under hot and dry weather conditions, with the maximum temperature crossing the 41-degree Celsius mark. In Delhi, temperature will continue to rise and is likely to touch the 43-degree mark on Tuesday. The minimum temperature is likely to hover around 25 degrees Celsius, a met official added.

The company is especially thankful to unsung heroes - traffic police, constables, security guards, etc. who work in the heat every day by offering them free water too.
An SBI General Insurance volunteer told Zee Business TV that the initiative has been introduced to make sure that people don't suffer because of the heat and they have got a great response so far.

"On behalf of SBI, we are going to various parts of Mumbai and distributing water so that the people are able to beat the heat. We are providing free water to make sure that people don't suffer because of the heat. And, so far we have got a great response from people. Wherever we are going, we are getting a great response. People should follow SBI and come up with more such initiatives like this at the individual level," he said.
The step is helping people of all age group and professions. An auto-rickshaw drive told Zee Business TV, "We drive auto-rickshaw throughout the day and often struggle to find drinking water. This service from SBI would really help us. Others should also learn from this and come up with something similar."
