Special Awards

Noida, Feb 12, 2021: Junior Astitva Samman recognises students for their innovative temperament. This prestigious award is given to the students who have made an outstanding contribution with positive results and innovation. This year, it was specifically meant for students who had made inventions keeping in mind the unprecedented situation of COVID-19.

Surat Sahni of Apeejay School, NOIDA is the proud recipient of the ‘5th Junior Astitva Samman 2021’ award for her project ‘Sehvasi Sahayak’. She received this award in a ceremony organised by the Women & Child Committee of the PHD Family Welfare Foundation on February 12, 2021, on the virtual platform.

When a complete lockdown was imposed in March and April 2020, there was a need to deliver perishable supplies like milk, fruits, and vegetables daily.

An AI-based ‘Sehvasi Sahayak’ has been developed by Surat Sahni which delivers these supplies daily without the “Customer-Vendor Contact” and can also simultaneously detect health conditions (temperature) of the customer. This AI-based smart pulley system - ‘Sehvasi Sahayak’ - has been devised to help the fellow residents of the society during the pandemic.

To support this android based application with a cloud database, supplies can be ordered through 'Sehvasi Sahayak' and can be paid for without “Cashier-Customer Contact” using an existing payment system. The local vendors were trained and instructed to sanitize the supplies before delivering them at the security gate. The supplies were again sanitized and packed in boxes labelled apartment-wise by the volunteers from the RWA, thus ensuring extra hygienic and safe delivery to the apartments. The ‘Sehvasi Sahayak’ system ensures that there is no direct contact between the vendor and the resident. This system helps the vendors earn money without having to put themselves in danger of COVID-19 infection due to the “Vendor-Customer Contact”.
