G Annadurai or famously known as Auto Annadurai, a Class 12 dropout, whose passion for his professionalism and his drive to serve his customers in the best possible way. In his desire to give his customers an experience to remember, it brought him great fame and put him in the spotlight and led to him earning over 40,000 Facebook Followers, and more than 40 speeches at corporate organizations and two TED talks to his credit.
Annadurai owns and drives a ‘share auto’ which can carry five to six people, and that’s the only common thing his vehicle shares with other rickshaws. Plying on the Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR), where most of the IT companies are located, he gained fame overnight, with some of the amenities he provides to his passengers in his rickshaw.
His auto-rickshaw is wifi enabled and equipped with a TV set, laptop, tablet, and Ipad, with the latter three devices being available for passengers who like to do surf the internet while on the go.
Every day, he plays the day’s important news clips on the TV, which is normally recorded during his lunch break at home.
He frequently updates his music collection from major Indian languages and plays them out to his passengers, in order to keep them entertained throughout.
For those who wish to stay updated with national and international news, or do some light reading, there is a collection of eight dailies and a collection of over 35 magazines all stacked neatly inside the auto.
Just last year, he installed a card swiping machine which ensures that his passengers can travel cashless in his auto. While even major keepers and businessmen discourage customers from swiping their credit/ debit cards as they (the shopkeeper) would have to pay a fee of 1 or 2 % of the billed amount to the bank. Annadurai states that he feels proud of contributing a share of his earnings to the banks.
Annadurai also offers free or discounted rides on special occasions. Teachers are offered free rides every day, lovers on Valentine’s Day, and women traveling with their children on Mother’s Day.
“I always look for ways to make my customers happy,” says Annadurai, who keeps his customer satisfaction as his highest priority and earns close to Rs 45,000 every month of which he spends close to Rs 9,000 on the amenities he provides for to his passengers.
His last investment for his auto-rickshaw was Rs 80,000 which was spent on procuring an Apple IPad Pro that he purchased in January.
As of now, Annadurai or Auto Anna is preparing for the launch of his app which would enable his passengers to track the live location of his auto, check and book a seat in his auto-rickshaw. He also has a dedicated Facebook page, with over 10,000 followers, and has featured in two TED talks so far. Annadurai intends to change the way autos work.

Through his flawless and innovative service, his integrity and friendliness, “many foreigners who stay in five-star hotels such as ITC Grand Chola, Taj or Hyatt and can get free rides to the airport in luxury cars, prefer to book my auto to the airport, just for the experience and since autos are not allowed at the airport terminals, so they get off, often with their families, and drag their suitcases to the departure area, but that does not deter them” he smiles, adding, “Once you travel in my auto, you will not remain a passenger; you’ll become my friend!”
