 Delhi Metro Gets First Vending Machine to Sell Condoms and Contraceptive Pills

The Delhi Metro opened its first vending machine on Wednesday that would make sanitary napkins, oral contraceptive pills, condoms (male and female), deodorants and ayurvedic products available to commuters.

Health Secretary Lov Verma inaugurated the first machine at the Central Secretariat Metro station. "This is a novel initiative of making available contraceptives and other healthcare products to the commuters of Delhi Metro," said Verma after the launch.


Kerala-based manufacturer of contraceptives HLL Lifecare Limited, in association with the Delhi Metro, has taken the initiative to make the products available at metro stations.

M. Ayyappan, HLL Lifecare Limited's chairman and managing director, said in the first phase, 25 vending machines would be put up at 21 Metro stations.

"Our endeavour is to make condoms, sanitary napkins, deodorants and contraceptive pills available to the commuters of Delhi Metro, who can avail this facility while on the move. It will also contribute to social issues of family planning, HIV/AIDS prevention," said Ayyappan.

Fully automatic multipurpose vending machines would be operated by vending company Instago. It will dispense the products at the press of a button after the money - both in paper and coin forms - are inserted.
