300 students enroll to become traffic mitra
Pillai HOCL Educational Campus organised a traffic awareness programme for their students on Tuesday. The event was conducted in association with the Navi Mumbai traffic police.
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.”
She added, “Pillai colleges have always encouraged our students to use their skills to create solutions for social and environmental issues that are hindering the country’s development. Events like these are a great way to encourage and involve our students to address real world problems.”
The police commissioner toured the Pillai Centre of Innovation and Research, a stateof-the-art research lab and entrepreneurship cell, on the Pillai HOCL Educational Campus.
Nagrale spoke to students working at the research lab and discussed ideas of how technology can be used for armed forces and for civilians’ safety.
