Back in 2014, a few students of IIT Delhi were on a road trip celebrating their job placements, when, unfortunately, one of the tyres of their vehicle burst. This resulted in a fatal accident, with all students dying on the spot. Following their deaths, students and alumni at IIT-Delhi started the Indian Road Safety Campaign (IRSC), a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness on road safety.

Working with over 1,500 colleges, the IRSC has become one of the largest youth-led organisations in the country, earning multiple national and international accolades. An offshoot of their work has been the creation of iSafe Assist, a service which provides 24/7 integrated emergency and hassle-free roadside assistance across 28 states and 1,795 cities in the country.
