Polaris India donates five vehicles to Uttarakhand Government

Polaris India Pvt. Ltd. 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 Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna at CM's residence, 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 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."
