Kolkata: Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has decided to start a hearse service. It already has an ambulance service, which is quite popular.
The rate for the vehicles has been decided at Rs 150 for every two hours, which is much less than that of private services providers. After two hours, it will be charged at Rs 50 per hour.
The service will start with three vehicles. More will be added later. There will be a dedicated helpline number for accessing the service.
