City Missing OMFED eCart


While Capital City will be facing Shut Down once again from tomorrow, citizens are making queries about e-Cart facilities of OMFED as they are missing the facilities.

e-Cart Initiative was taken up by OMFED with much fanfare and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik was happy to unveil the program last year.
 
While OMFED had procured Battery Operated e-CART, which were deployed inside the Bhubaneswar City, covering the 67 wards, now those were not seen for quite some time..
 
Each E-Cart were deployed in specific clusters of Bhubaneswar City, for operating in one or more wards and was covering minimum 500 consumers daily and 3500 consumers weekly.
 
However, at a later stage, e-Carts were missing in action as the battery operated carts were not attended properly by the OMFED authorities.  
 
With the Capital City facing another bout of Shut Down, many are struggling to purchase food items, milk and related essential products in the wake of the nationwide pandemic Covid-19.
 
e-Carts will be much helpful for door step delivery and citizens require the service during this period.
 
As this initiative really supporting the society by delivering the essential food and milk products to their door step, there is a growing demand to restart e-Cart Services in the Capital City.
 
Similarly in Cuttack such facilities were launched by the OMFED authorities and now it is seen that battery operated carts are lying unutilized.
 
While Fishfed is operating Fish On wheels and serving the people in a big way during Lock Down period, similar services are expected from e-Cart by OMFED.
 
In fact e-Cart initiative was spread across 12 districts of Odisha withe 50-60 e-Carts.
 
Now it is high time that OMFED authorities are needed to activate e-Cart facilities and provide services to the people.
 
While OMFED has initiated home delivery service during lock down and shut down period, running e-Cart in a professional manner will go a long way to protect its consumer base in the Twin City, which is fast dwindling, officials say.
 
Due to serious flaw in its marketing policy, OMFED is losing consumers base to private milk producers as they are adopting innovative marketing strategies.
 
Both Milky Moo and Pragati Milk are biggest beneficiaries of Lock down and Shut Down period as they are hyperactive in reaching the consumers and in the process OMFED is losing its consumer base.
