There’s one thing that is very common these days; Long queues at ATMs. After Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on November 8 that Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 won’t be considered as legal tenders, the whole nation went into frenzy. Cash crunch became a serious problem, especially for daily wage labourers, farmers and lower middle class. Another problem that arose was people don’t have hours to spare to stand in queues. After all, how many office leave can you take or how many daily chores can you put on hold for days?
To solve this dilemma of common man these days, services like DoneThing and Bookmychhotu allows you to hire a person to stand in your place in a queue.
Like everything, it also comes at price. While DoneThing charges Rs 100 an hour, Bookmychhotu offers the same service at Rs. 90 an hour.
The concept seems to have hit the right chords at the right time and has already caught a lot of attention.
We indeed excel at ‘jugaad’!
