The launch of the service means that from now on in case of emergency, the residents of New Delhi and Gurgaon can be attended maximum within 30 minutes to provide the customer the fastest, most effective and reliable medical service. To help the team reach the patient faster, the company has also installed GPS system in place. This will help the team to find out the exact location of the patient.

The company has floated two kinds of memberships-Gold and Silver. The Gold Customers will be located using a GPS key ring. In the event of an emergency all the customer has to do is press the predefined number on their mobile phone in order to be connected to the team to take care of him. The rescue team will reach at the location in not more than 30 minutes and will be given the necessary medical treatment then and there. Incase of life threatening emergencies, the patients will be taken to a nearest or desired hospital in an ambulance. Apart from the patients' preference, the company is also in the process of tying up with some of popular hospitals across the two cities. The annual subscription for Gold membership is Rs 15,000 per person and any additional membership will cost Rs 7500.
The other one is silver membership. The silver customers are covered within their homes and need to call the toll free number-1800 102 3005, using either their landline phone or registered mobile in the event of a medical emergency.
