New in The City of Mumbai

Amit was New in town he had just landed a big gig as a departmental head at one of the biggest MNCs. Now he was earlier located at Delhi and had no experience being in the city of Mumbai. He and his wife had moved into Hiranandani in powai while his office was located in BKC. Amit and his wife Nalini were having an argument over amit being too devoted to work.

"Amit you no longer time for me all you do is work nowadays, you were not like this before. We used to go out in the weekends and go to the movies during the week; nowadays you tend to bring in your work to home."

"Nalini you don’t understand I need to put in the extra effort to make sure that I get the hang of the job. On top of that you know I drive to work and it takes me almost one hour of drive each ways to reach office it really drains me out after that I have little strength left to do anything else."

"I know but your personal life is also important don’t you think, the kids are also getting fussy as we have not gone out much after moving to the city."

"So what do you want me to do quit my job."
"No I don't want you to do that I just want you to make some time for us too."
"Well I am trying but it’s a new job and it will take me some time to get used to the processes."

"Fine at least don’t bring work home do it while you are at office or in your car."

"In the car are you crazy! I am driving the damn car I can’t do anything else."

"So find someone else to drive your car."

"Don't you think I have thought of that, of hiring a personal driver, so that I can do some work in the car too? But these driver agencies just keep giving me leads and expect me to talk to the drivers. I don't have time for that."

"If you are really ready to hire a driver then I have a solution, I just came across this driver hiring service called SAAARTHI.COM, which does all the work from selecting to discussing salary with the drivers. You just need to meet the driver to test his driving skills."

"Really but where did you learn of it?"

"One of my colleagues at work just used this service and she was really happy with it. "

"So do you think we should give it a try??"

"Sure why not if they can really save me the time."

Puneet's Search for a Personal Driver

It Was a fine Friday evening, Puneet had just returned from office, his shaili who was working in the kitchen, came out.
“Puneet, did you ask your colleagues today?”
“About what honey?”
“About the driver that we had decided to hire? It’s been a month now and none of the job sites is giving any result.”

“ Oh yes! I just completely forgot about it, let me try Mahesh he recently hired a personal driver.”
“Hi Mahesh, it’s Puneet sorry to trouble you but could you tell me from where did you hire yourself a driver?”
“Not a problem Puneet, I hired the driver from”
“Ok, Is it any good?”
“ Yes and I was really surprised by their service bouquet. They do all the verification, Provide a police clearance certificate for their drivers and on top of that they also provide solutions such as doorstep car spa and discounted car insurance. In my opinion real value for money!”
“ Hey Those are some really nice services these guys are providing so in your opinion how is the driver they provided?”
“ The driver they sent is really decent and if I don’t like him I can always ask for a replacement during the contract period.”

“ Hey, These are some really unique services, Thanks for the help Mahesh”

Diane’s Personal Driver in Mumbai

Diane had just moved into Mumbai, she was an American journalist with a reputed news agency in USA. She was used to the American way of life such as getting your own groceries, lugging around the heavy bags to home. She was still getting used to the Hubbub of the city called Mumbai with its incessant horns, heat, pollution which was a perfect recipe for stress. On top of that she preferred driving herself, in a city like Mumbai it was nothing short of a challenge. The Traffic in Mumbai can throw a lot of challenges even to an expert driver on Indian roads and drive most people to the extremes of stress and road rage.

One of her colleagues suggested that she hire herself a personal driver. She just remembered the conversation sitting at the backseat of her Car.

“What Hire a personal chauffeur won’t that be an expensive affair, Liam?”

“Not at all Diane it will turn out much cheaper than Hiring a cab daily and you will be able to travel at leisure being able to complete your work or listen to music or a podcast.”

“But still I will not like to hire a driver, I have all these meetings daily and I don’t expect someone to wait on me. I can manage myself.”

“Seriously, weren’t you saying just the other day that it took you 30 minutes just to find a parking spot? And a few days ago you were saved from a deadly accident by a whisker. Listen to me Diane and hire yourself a personal driver, the trains are not going to take you everywhere and you yourself are unsure of driving in the city. There a lot of locations where you may not be able to find a cab either.”

“Fine Liam, I will hire a personal driver for myself, but being alone in the city and hearing all the crimes being committed by domestic Helps, I am a little Skeptical.”

After This Conversation she had tried a lot of driver service agencies asked her colleagues to find a good driver but all was in vain. She had to interview a ton of people do their reference checks and yet the people who she was finding were not even close to being good enough. While doing a google search once again to find herself a driver, she stumbled upon an Ad which stated Hire Police Verified Drivers, She was a little intrigued by this and contacted SAAARTHI.

“Good morning Mam, welcome to SAAARTHI, How can we help you today?”

“Hi,I am looking to hire a driver but could you please explain what do you guys mean by Police Verified Driver?”

“Of course Mam, We Believe that a Hiring a driver is a very intimate affair and that person will be knowing your whereabouts every time, so our firm belief is that we all the hires made via us should be properly verified. Thus we have three Tiers of Verification: First we do a document verification and store his biometric data with us, second we do a background verification and reference check of the driver and finally we make him get a Police Clearance Certificate certifying he has no criminal history.”

“Hey that’s really nice for Expats like us who do not know this city.”

After that in a day she had received SAAARTHI smart CV’s, which relieved of the stress of multiple people entering her kitchen one by one to give interviews, which she had come to dislike. Everything else is History.

Diane now sat at the back seat of the car leisurely listening to Music on her iPod, while the Driver she had hired from SAAARTHI weeded though the Mumbai traffic.

How Mr Patel Loved the Idea of Saaarthi

Mr Patel had applied for the service of a driver providing service and they had provided him with around 10-15 candidate's numbers to call them up and to set a meeting with them. He had called up every one of them and most of them never picked up his call and the others were a no show at the scheduled meeting and Mr Shah was infuriated by this, so he called up the service provider to give them an earful.

"Hello? I am Mr Patel and I had asked for a driver few weeks back?"

"Ohhh yes Mr Patel, how did it go with the candidates we had suggested for you?"

"How did it go?! I will tell you how it went! None of them have responded to my calls, its been almost a month now that I came to you and you didn’t even bother to follow up with me about it !"

"Sorry sir, but I am sure one of our representatives would have called you up, to check the progress you have made."

"Don’t give me that crap now, no one ever called me from your office, I am sure you guys might have forgotten about me or maybe it’s just that you don’t value your customers!"

"Sir, there has been some misunderstanding, how about we call up the candidates ourselves and ask them to contact you ASAP"
"No need for that! I am done with you guys! Cancel my service right now! I am going to opt for some other service provider."

Mr Patel Learned of Saaarthi from his friend and how a R.M. was always there to ensure that an Interview happened.

“Hello, I am Mr Patel and would like to hire a permanent driver.”

“Hello Mr Patel, Thank You for calling SAAARTHI.COM, we will provide you a list of CV’s based on your requirement once you select the candidate we will arrange for the face to face meeting where one of our R.M.’s will accompany the Driver.”

After a few days.

“Hello this is Mr Patel I am really happy with your process, At least it’s 10 Times better than the other services”

“Thank you, for Choosing Mr Patel”

Hiring A driver for the Boss

Mr Parekh is a Managing Director of a private firm, He had asked his personal assistant to hire a personal chauffeur for him. It had been a couple of days since so he called her in to his office.

“So Rekha what happened about that personal chauffeur, I had asked you to hire for me?

“Sorry sir for the delay, I have contacted a lot of agencies in Mumbai, but it’s been tough to find one, to be true”

“Didn’t you get the contact details of a couple of drivers from these agencies?”

“Yes sir and I have been calling all of them this whole week”


“Sir, the drivers make appointments but never show up! It’s been quite frustrating.”

“Why would they do that now? Haven’t you talked to the guys from these agencies?”

“I did sir, but they just make excuses every time I call them and say that they would get back to us as soon as possible.”

“How are we to get this sorted now?! I need a driver in the next two weeks!”

“Sir, may I suggest you about a company, of whom I have heard about from Mr Arvind the CFO.”

“Sure, tell me”

“This company’s name is and they personally take care of all the appointments and follow up etc. they even provide you a Video resume for the driver so that you need not meet N number of people before selecting one.”

OH is it? That’s really interesting! So why don’t you call them up and see if they can hire a driver for us? , These other agencies have turned out to be really useless.”

“OK, sir.”

That Evening:

“Sir, The company seems to be really efficient they have already sent 3 Video resumes for us to shortlist from.”

“Really! That was quite efficient. If only the other agencies were so efficient, I would have already found myself a good driver. Show me the resumes and let’s schedule an appointment for tomorrow itself”

The Drive To The Party

Mr Puneet had a party to attend on a weekend. The venue was a bit far from where he resided. He Just thought that hopefully his wife would have forgotten all about it.

As he was sipping his evening Tea, his wife said: “Honey, you do remember right we have a party to attend this weekend, Why haven’t you dressed up?”

“Ohh yes, Mr Shah’s party, right? “

“Yes, he had called me up again yesterday to confirm.”

“Oh, But Don’t you think the venue of the party is pretty far away?”

“Yes, it’s a long drive from here. So what! We are going I have already committed that we will be there.”

“ Fine I will get ready, But I won’t be driving you there. I am too tired to even hold the Driving wheel.”

“ You Don’t need to. Remember I now have a Personal Driver for myself ?”

“ What you hired someone already without even doing a Background check? Don’t you think it’s too risky?”

“ Not to worry Dear , SAAARTHI.COM , the driver service agency that I hired has already done that. They are also processing his Police clearance Certificate for added safety.”

“ Hey Nice, Now probably you won’t drag me along on your shopping escapades.”

“ I have a reliable Driver, But you still need to carry the bags. Now enough chitchat just get ready already.”
