(Mirror) - An Islandwide sticker promotion for trishaw drivers ended in a grand draw which saw trishaws being gifted to the lucky winners.
M R Thilakarathne and K W Jayasinghe were the recipients of the vehicles.
The promotion aimed at empowering trishaws drivers and added value to the ongoing personal accident cover scheme.
K W Jayasinghe who previously drove a trishaws owned by a third party expressed his gratitude to Janashkthi saying, “I have always dreamt of owning a three-wheeler and increasing my income independent of others. I am grateful to Janashakthi for giving me this chance to realize my dream.”
To qualify for the benefits of the Janashakthi personal accident cover scheme, drivers have to display the Janashakthi branded sticker on the back of the three-wheelers.
In the event of a death caused by an accident the driver who has third party Full Option policy and his family will receive Rs 100,00/=. Furthermore, if a three-wheeler driver without a Full Option policy meets with an accident the next of kin will receive Rs 50,000/=.
