Through this initiative, we aim to spread awareness about the benefits of walking and encourage people to build more walking into their everyday life to enhance their overall well-being," Manasije Mishra, chief executive (designate), Max Bupa said.

According to a study by the health care provider, 13 percent of men and 15 percent of women in the country use their cars for commuting to places which are at a walking distance.

The research also showcased that the figure is much higher than other countries such as the United States, Hong Kong, Egypt and Brazil.
