The situation in Uttarakhand left many people homeless and stranded. With the rescue efforts still ongoing, ATV manufacturers Polaris have decided to help out the Uttarakhand Government.Polaris has donated one Sportsman Big Boss 6X6 800, one Sportsman 550 Hunter EPS, one RZR S 800 EFI and two Ranger 900 Diesel. Adding to the gesture of commitment to stand by the government during this crisis, 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.
These ATVs can maneuver around rough terrain and are already being used by the Defence, Para military forces, police, and the disaster management, tourism and forest departments. Mr Pankaj Dubey, MD, Polaris India said, “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.”
