SpiceJet Chairman's daughter-led healthcare venture looks to support Covid vax driveNew Delhi: SpiceJet Chairman Ajay Singhs daughter Avani Singh-led healthcare venture, which has disrupted the Covid testing market is now looking to support the country's upcoming Covid vaccination drive.

At present, the healthcare venture offers the cheapest and fastest RT-PCR testing in the country.

A trained commercial pilot, a bachelor's and master's degree holder from Stanford University, and having learned the ropes working as a consultant at McKinsey, Singh had all that it takes for a big plunge into her father's business.

Her father, Ajay Singh, is known as the turnaround man of Indian aviation and is one of the country's most successful entrepreneurs, running the country's second-biggest airline, SpiceJet.

Avani, however, came with other plans.

At 24 years of age, Singh has scripted one of the rare success stories in these gloomy times with her new health care venture, SpiceHealth.

"No doubt, aviation is my first love but I wanted to do something that would make a meaningful difference to our country in these very difficult times. That is why I got involved with this idea of RT-PCR test," Singh said in an interaction with IANS.

Currently, SpiceHealth has disrupted the covid testing market.

An RT-PCR test that would cost anywhere between Rs 2,400-4,000 is being conducted at a fraction of the price by SpiceHealth for Rs 499 only.

Not just price, SpiceHealth is providing the test report within just 6 hours from the time of sample collection as compared to the average 24-48 hours.
