Founded by ex-McKinsey executives, Anupam Agarwal and Karan Jain, Revv started in July 2015 from Delhi-NCR.

"Healthcare workers battling the Covid-19 crisis at the frontline are our true heroes, and several of them are facing challenges with their commute to hospitals because of no availability of public transport. This is the least that we can do for them," said the co-founders.

"We're inviting partners across these cities to help us accelerate this. For example, in Bengaluru, we are partnering with a 12,000 strong citizen volunteer group, to facilitate the distribution of these cars to healthcare workers that they are engaged with," they added.

In each of the five cities where Revv is providing this service, healthcare workers can reach out to the company at 9250035555 to place a booking, the company said, adding that Revv will also add the service to its website and apps soon.

After placing the booking, the healthcare worker can pick up the car from Revv's delivery centres, and use it free of charge. But they will have to make a security deposit of 2,500 which is fully refundable.

Revv will require the user to share a copy of his proof of work (such as the hospital ID card) at the time of placing the booking.

All the cars will be sanitised before handover, the company said.

Revv counts Hyundai as its strategic investor, and Hyundai and M&M as its subscriptions partners.
