About India Assist
India assist was founded in 2017 with the vision to make travel in India stress free for foreign tourists. ‘India Assist’ is a ‘First-Call Assistance’ for any traveller who requires assistance, channelized through a mobile application.
The founders of India Assist, Harish Khatri, and MoqierishTak identified a serious gap in the travel and tourism landscape, that of security and active on-ground assistance for travellers which is lacking almost everywhere, and is a global issue.
They conceptualized and launched India Assist with a vision to ‘bridge the gap and enhance the Indian Experience for travellers.’
India Assist is an ‘assistance & distress management’ service via a subscription based phone app. They provide help to travellers in India which includes verified information and personalised assistance through an on-ground team in Medical Emergencies, Theft, loss, Altercation and Transit.
India Assist is redefining the Travel & Tourism Eco system by incorporating an Assistance & Distress management service. India Assist (IA) aims to boost tourism in the country by directly impacting the perception of the foreign tourists, creating job opportunities, better services, social stability and increasing cash flow within the tourism sector.
IA not only compliments major stakeholders in the Travel & Tourism market, but it is a logical partner to many players thus making them a unique and a stand- alone player in an untouched market space within the tourism industry.
