HYDERABAD: Cremating the dead in times of Covid has become a lucrative business. With the mortality rate on a steady rise, a couple of corporate-styled funeral services’ firms – apart from local pandits and touts – are seen rolling out special packages on last rites, charging anywhere between Rs 30,000 and Rs 35,000 per ceremony.

海得拉巴:在新冠肺炎疫情期间,火化已成为一项有利可图的业务。随着死亡率的稳步上升,葬礼服务公司推出了临终仪式的特别套餐,每场仪式收费在3万到3.5万卢比之间。

One of these companies – assuring end-to-end service across seven Indian cities – even has a complete customer support team in place at its headquarters, along with on-ground managers in every city, to handle its ‘orders’.

其中一家公司在7个印度城市提供端到端服务,在总部有一个完整的客户支持团队,每个城市都有现场管理人员处理“订单”。

“We will conduct the entire procedure for you – from picking up the body to arranging a vehicle, booking a slot at the crematorium (in Bansilalpet), organising a pandit and even getting the material required for the rites,” said Sampath Bangaram, city manager of the Bengaluru-based Anthyesti Funeral Services with offices in Chennai, Delhi, Jaipur among others. The package rate for Hyderabad: Rs 32,000.

Sampath Bangaram是班加罗尔Anthyesti殡葬服务公司的城市经理,该公司在金奈、德里、斋浦尔等地都设有办事处,他说:“我们会为客户包办整个过程——从接遗体到安排车辆,在火葬场预订时间,安排一位祭司,以及仪式所需的物品。”海德拉巴的套餐价为3.2万卢比。

Much like many other e-commerce platforms, here too the ‘customer’ is first directed to the firm’s hotline number for registration. Then, based on location, he/she is patched a call with the city coordinator. The payment is made directly to the company’s account.

和其他电商平台一样,先引导“客户”拨打公司的热线号码进行登记。然后,根据地点,客户可以给城市协调员打电话,款项直接打到公司账户。

Funeral Seva Services, though limited to Hyderabad for now, too works on similar lines.

Funeral Seva Services也在从事类似的业务,不过目前仅限于海德拉巴。

It prides itself on offering ‘funeral services at your doorstep’ and has a two different – gold and basic – packages listed on its website. The former, predictably, promises a more elaborate cremation.

该公司标榜提供“家门口的葬礼服务”,并在网站上列出了两种不同的服务套餐——黄金套餐和基本套餐。可以预见的是,前者的火化过程将更加复杂。

While the executive was hesitant to share too many details over telephone when TOI called posing as a client, he said: “We are charging Rs 30,000 for Covid patients... it’s a risky job and getting slots at cremation sites is very difficult with the rush.” On being probed about the packages he added: “Please send us your location, our executive will come there and give you details.”

《印度时报》假装客户打电话,这名高管不愿透露太多细节,他说:“新冠肺炎死者,我们收费3万卢比……这是一项很有风险的工作,在火葬场预定名额非常难。”

在被问及套餐问题时,他补充说:“请把你的位置发给我们,我们的管理人员会过去为你详细介绍。”

Both these organisations said that they have been getting between 6 and 10 calls every day.

这两家公司表示,他们每天都接6到10个电话。

BJP should grab this opportunity to increase the volume of PM care fund. At the same time build a big crematorium in the name of Naren modi shouldbe inaugurated with package deal for his supportes. Only 30K for the cremation, if you are Andh Bhakt.

莫迪应该以纳伦的名义建一个大火葬场,为他的支持者提供一条龙服务。如果是印度教徒的话,火葬费用只需要3万。
