The inauguration ceremony was held at the Kothrud depot of PMPML and was presided over by Chandrakant Patil, Minister of Higher and Technical Education, Maharashtra state and Guardian Minister of Pune District.

Prominent figures in attendance included Sachindra Pratap Singh, Chairman and Managing Director of PMPML, Nitin Narvekar, Joint Managing Director, and Pragya Potdar-Pawar, Chief Executive Officer, among others.

During his speech, Chandrakant Patil emphasized the significance of the cashless system in accordance with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative to promote digital transactions.
