In an attempt to raise awareness on the growing level of pollution, the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) organised 40 Pollution Under Control (PUC) check-up camps free of cost across the city on June 5, World Environment day. The camps also aimed at making vehicle owners aware about the importance of safe vehicles and a clean environment.
This year, SIAM in its special initiative SAFE (Society for Automotive Fitness and Environment) had undertaken around 2,200 PUC check-up camps in 256 cities across the nation. The aim was to check nearly more than 50,000 vehicles in this year while last year the initiative checked 25,000 vehicles at 1,200 dealerships covering more than 250 cities.
