Airtel, in partnership with AI startup Vahan, will extend relief support to migrants

NEW DELHI: Telecom service provider Bharti Airtel is planning to extend relief services such as food, shelter, healthcare and even jobs to blue collar workers and migrants in partnership with AI startup Vahan.

The Bengaluru-based startup, which matches job seekers with employers inside messaging apps such as Whatsapp, has a network of 1000+ help groups and NGOs working for the cause.

Airtel will send SMS in English, Hindi and Kannada carrying a link to Vahan’s platform to all impacted workers on its network. Once the receiver clicks the link, Vahan will use Artificial Intelligence solution inside messaging apps such as Whatsapp to connect the user with the nearest relief providers, the company said in a press release on Friday.

“We at Vahan, in close partnership with Airtel, are really proud to be able to leverage the power of our technology to touch millions of the most needy when they require our help the most. We are also excited about our ability to help these people get jobs as we all work towards returning to normalcy,” said Madhav Krishna, CEO of Vahan, in which Airtel owns a stake.

Airtel had extended the prepaid validity of 80 million low-end customers till April 17 along with the Rs 10 talktime credit.
