The concept for dual chambered taxi originated at IMA Cochin, in association with the RTO, Ernakulam. The basic idea was the creation of a glass/plastic partition in the middle of the vehicle, separating the driver from the passenger. Around 400 of the CIAL taxis have now been converted into dual chambered taxis.
All the commute between railway stations and airports are done in these taxis, to guarantee the safety of the passenger as well as the driver. The primary objective of this model was to provide employment opportunities for drivers whose livelihoods had come to a standstill, due to the pandemic. Following this model, other states have also started implementing this method.
