Innokart – An Eco Friendly Food-Vending Cart Made by Students of Jamia
Innokart, an eco friendly food-vending cart, an authentic Jamia student initiative. The three students Huma Pervez, Faiza Jamal and Faraz Khan of Jamia Millia Islamia, a central university in New Delhi is behind this food-vending cart, which is currently undergoing the process of patenting. The distinctive feature of the food-vending cart is that it is environment friendly with a special arrangement for waste disposal and production of solar power.
Product has been primarily displayed to the public in the festival of innovation conducted at Rashtrapati Bhavan, New Delhi. This food-vending cart if permitted to use widely, will ensure better food selling than ordinary vending carts. This product will not damage our environment since it has a proper waste dumping system and the provision for generating solar power using solar panels.
“The product named ‘Innokart’ is an economical food vending cart that provides proper storage, shelter and hygiene. The cart promises to transform street food selling in India for the better,” said Mini S Thomas, Honorary Director, Jamia’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE).
“Besides the storage drawers, the cart has two sections for waste disposal-for dry and wet waste each. The top panel has been kept free for advertisements while there is a plan to set up solar panel on the rooftop,” she added.
For now, the cart will be used by our canteen people for selling food in streets inside the university campus. We will then see if there are any flaws that need to be removed and further work on its commercial viability, Thomas said.
Jamia students have done a magnificent job! This food-vending cart will surely occupy a significant position in commercial markets replacing ordinary vending carts. From this you can grasp one thing that simply acquiring knowledge is not important its application is important. In that sense we can conclude that the three Jamia students have a good application skill. Well Done!!
