GURJOT Singh Kaler is a multitasker. With eight years of service under his belt, he is serving as the Superintendent of Police (Traffic and Cyber Crime) in Punjab’s Mohali. He has penned poems, written a book, sung songs, made videos, done skydiving to create social awareness, other than helping people in several ways.

During the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, Gurjot has masterminded a scheme run by Mohali Traffic Police, wherein senior citizens travelling for vaccination get free taxi rides. There is also a provision for delivery of medicines to the elderly.

“Senior citizens can book taxis by calling the dedicated numbers 9115516010 and 01722219356. They have to follow Covid protocols and carry Aadhaar cards,” Gurjot says. This service is available from Monday to Friday from 10 am to 2 pm. “On May 11, we started doorstep delivery of medicines for senior citizens. They call at a dedicated number and we deliver at their doorsteps. They pay only for the medicines.”
