Kota: A Mumbai based researcher and scientist Murtaza Hamid, who hails from Kota has offered to donate Rs 110 crore to the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund for the welfare of Pulwama martyrs.

Murtaza – a blind since birth graduated in commerce, has sought an appointment to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi via email sent to PMO last week.

Speaking to TOI, Murtaza said, “The inspiration to help and support those who lay down their lives for our motherland should be in the blood of every citizen of the country.”

He will hand over a check of Rs 110 crore from his taxable income to the Prime Minister and waiting for confirmation email. Also would like to talk about new schemes and technologies for social work.

Talking about innovation in science and technology, he claims to have innovated ‘Fuel Burn Radiation Technology’ which helps to trace and locate any object or vehicle without GPS or camera. Recently, he bagged a good deal from a private company for the same.

He further says that he had forwarded the proposal to the government and National Highway authority of India in September 2016 but received initial approval after two years in October 2018 and still waiting for further development.

Hailing from automobile business family, he faced losses due to being blind. Later he worked in the field of mobile and Dish TV. In 2010, while visiting Jaipur he saw fuel catching fire when one talked on mobile phone at a petrol pump. This incident led him to innovate ‘Fuel Burn Radiation Technology’.
