The Indian Institute of Horticultural Research (IIHR) on Tuesday handed over four vans to Hopcoms to facilitate the door-to-door sale of vegetables and fruits during the lockdown. 

These vehicles use solar and electric power to keep the vegetables and fruits fresh in all the seasons. Hopcoms in Bengaluru, Kalaburagi, Belagavi and Mandya will get a vehicle each.
