Po­laris In­dia do­nates five ve­hi­cles to Ut­tarak­hand Govern­ment


Po­laris In­dia Pvt. Ltd, the world leader in off-road and all­ter­rain ve­hi­cles has do­nated five off road ve­hi­cles to Ut­tarak­hand Govern­ment, to as­sist in re­lief ef­forts af­ter the state was hit by floods re­cently. Po­laris In­dus­tries Inc., US has also sup­ported this cause.

Po­laris has do­nated one Sports­man Big Boss 6X6 800, one Sports­man 550 Hunter EPS, one RZR S 800 EFI and two Ranger 900 Diesel. The ve­hi­cles were handed over to Ut­tarak­hand Chief Min­is­ter Vi­jay Bahuguna at his res­i­dence in Dehradun. Adding to the ges­ture of com­mit­ment to stand by the govern­ment in this so­cial cause, Po­laris has also of­fered to main­tain th­ese ve­hi­cles for a pe­riod of two years with full ser­vice and re­pair at no cost to the govern­ment.

“We are moved by the mag­ni­tude of the re­cent tragedy in Ut­tarak­hand. With the en­tire net­work of roads in and around the states de­stroyed and non-ex­is­tent now, apart from de­bris on the ground from thou­sands of de­stroyed homes, we feel that Po­laris In­dia can ex­tend a hand of sup­port to help ex­pe­dite the re­lief op­er­a­tions. Th­ese spe­cialised off road ve­hi­cles will help in mak­ing th­ese ar­eas ac­ces­si­ble,” said Pankaj Dubey, MD, Po­laris In­dia.

Po­laris ve­hi­cles are spe­cially de­signed to ma­noeu­vre around rough ter­rain where best of ve­hi­cles fail to run. The ve­hi­cles are widely used by de­fence, para­mil­i­tary forces and po­lice, and disas­ter man­age­ment, tourism and for­est de­part­ments.

“Po­laris has long sup­ported char­i­ta­ble ef­forts, and we hope the do­na­tion of th­ese ve­hi­cles will as­sist the re­lief ef­forts as they pro­vide the af­fected com­mu­ni­ties with the re­lief they des­per­ately need. We also of­fer to help train the res­cue and re­lief teams about the us­age of th­ese ve­hi­cles and ed­u­cate them about their ca­pa­bil­i­ties,” added Dubey.
