The event aimed at spread­ing traf­fic aware­ness among the youth and to en­roll them for the Traf­fic Mi­tra Pro­gramme be­ing con­ducted by Navi Mum­bai traf­fic Po­lice.

Speak­ing to stu­dents, com­mis­sioner of po­lice He­mant Na­grale said: “Apart from your stud­ies, you also need to be aware of your sur­round­ings. If you have that knowl­edge, you too can con­trib­ute to the safety of your city.”

The in­sti­tu­tion’s PRO Nivedita Shreyans said, “More than 300 stu­dents were en­rolled by the traf­fic po­lice at the event. The stu­dents will un­dergo one day train­ing un­der Navi Mum­bai traf­fic po­lice at their train­ing head­quar­ters in Taloja.”

Events like these are a great way to en­cour­age and in­volve our stu­dents to ad­dress real world prob­lems.”
