Safety and security in India is an option than necessity. Statistics say that there is one death every four minutes due to a road accident in India. In India there is 1 road accident for every minute and a person dies for every 6 minutes on Indian roads. Most accidents occur due to rash driving or drunk driving.
Gaurav Kumar and Aswini Nunna carefully studied these statistics and came up with a solution to put an end to rash and drunk driving. The solution was in the form of the startup, Cyrrup.
