  • We help people from the mobility sector who are in need, by facilitating donations from individuals and businesses via a transparent, tech-enabled platform and processes.
  • As long as you are working as an individual in the mobility sector (taxi drivers, food delivery boys, people working at car plants, petrol pump workers, automobile dealer and their employees, etc.) and have an educational or a medical need for yourself or your family members, you can sign up and register as a Recipient.

  • In India, yes, all donations are deductible under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act.
  • However, if you've contributed towards a need eligible for 80G benefits but haven't furnished your PAN and Address details within 72 hours, we will be unable to provide you with the 80G receipt. DriveASmile is obligated to promptly transfer the raised funds to the medical/educational institution and also submit donor information, including PAN and Address, to the tax authorities. Therefore, it is vital to submit these details within the designated timeframe.
  • If you still haven't received it, you can drop us an email at contact@driveasmile.org
