According to Kundan, NSUI has launched the helpline number, 7669886366 under the able guidance of Rahul Gandhi for assisting people in booking their vaccination slots and providing them the information of the documents required and the procedure with the protocols. They also help people who are lacking the basic facilities like smartphones and internet connectivity.
"NSUI will help them in the registration process as well the volunteers will also assist old age people living alone for their pick and drop service to there respective vaccination centers. People will be informed about the documents required for registration for vaccination. They will be guided on how to register, or how to book a vaccination schedule," said Kundan.
"Members of NSUI will register and book the slots for the people through WhatsApp. People who lack internet or smartphone facility can call on this helpline number and NSUI volunteers will help them in completing the registration process personally," he added.
