Our present generation is more industrious than the older generation. We believe in doing smart things more than hard work. Many startups in the market are running successfully and new startups are starting every day. But not everyone can succeed in this line. Again some people create a new place for themselves by their own intellect and hard work.

Today’s story is by Riaz Chhetri, the founder and CEO of ‘NE Taxi’. Riaz was born in 1994 in Gangtok, Sikkim. He is a graduate of Forestry from North Eastern Regional Institute of Science and Technology, Arunachal Pradesh. His late father was a poultry farmer and his mother was a housewife.

Riaz said, “I started NE taxi business in my second year of college. It was very challenging for me in the beginning. I started this business by buying a domain for 300 rupees. I realized from day one that I had to work hard to get my company to where I wanted to be.

I started the business in 2013 and launched the app in 2016. ” Also people in the Northeast did not trust the car rental company. Several travel agents also tried to confuse them. But in spite of all this, he did not change his mind.

But Riaz’s business has picked up speed since last year when Riaz included Geet Gera on the board. Now their business is improving day by day. He also received a cash prize of Rs 5 lakh from YLC for his business plan. He spent all this money on developing the application. Riaz Gangtok has grown up. So he wanted to solve the logistical problem of Sikkim.

The people here have to face many problems while traveling. When Riaz was studying in Arunachal Pradesh, the only way to travel from Guwahati was by bus. One day a thought came to his mind that we could start using luxury vehicles to travel in our area. And that’s how his business started.

Riaz is still working to improve the transportation system in the area. ” That’s what it says. From the first day, business modeling was started on the basis of commission.
He invested all his earnings in this business. Today, their main membership is 5 people. And 26 employees are working in five branches. Today, the annual turnover of NE Taxi is around Rs. 90 lakhs

It has five branches in Gangtok, Darjeeling, Tawang, Guwahati and Shillong. When Riaz started the project, he was optimistic about his goal and believed that one day it would succeed. But his path was not easy. He had many reasons to leave the business, but he kept his decision with foresight.
