First of its kind initiative to ensure worry free Navaratri for lakhs of families visiting Mysuru Dasara festivities.
Vodafone Idea is conducting a first of its kind initiative in association with the Mysuru City Police Department, to ensure a safe and worry free Navaratri festival for tourists visiting the Mysuru Palace during Dasara 2018.
All children under 14 years of age are being protected with Vodafone Happy Cards (RFID radio-frequency identification) tags that are hung on their neck at any of the three entry points to the Mysuru Palace, ensuring their movements and location remain tracked till the time they return to the entry/exit point. This initiative is being done to help prevent incidents of children getting lost during the annual Mysuru Dasara festivities which sees the influx of lakhs of visitors to the city.
Post registration, each child is being provided with a Vodafone Happy Card (RFID tag) mapped to the child’s name, guardian’s name, contact number and relevant details. If a child with a Vodafone Happy Card (RFID tag) is separated from his or her family, police officials after finding the child take them to the control centre where the Vodafone Happy card (RFID) reader scans the Vodafone happy card (RFID) tag. The child’s whereabouts are immediately passed on to the mobile number registered in the card.
The initiative simplifies monitoring the movements of young visitors to the palace and facilitates quick reunion with their dear ones. The tag hung from their neck help the Mysuru police to track the movements of children.
