Recently pictures of an auto rickshaw in Mumbai are going viral on social media, where the driver of the three-wheeler has included several facilities in his vehicle and converted it into the 'first home system' auto-rickshaw.
The '101% 1RK (room, kitchen) auto' has even caught attention of former actress Twinkle Khanna along with other netizens.
According to imaged shared by news agency ANI on its Twitter, auto driver Satyawan Gite has adorned his vehicle with a washbasin, a liquid hand washing soap, mobile charging points, plants and desktop monitor among others.
Not just this, Satyawan Gite also provides free rides to senior citizens for up to one kilometer.
