Bangalore, January 16, 2023: Jawa-Yezdi Motorcycles is proud to partner with the National Cadet Corps’ (NCC) ‘Dandi se Dilli’ motorcycle rally. This motorcycle rally is an initiative by the NCC Directorate Gujarat as a part of its ‘Pachattar Varsh’ (75 years) Celebrations. The 1300 km rally was flagged off by Shri Kanubhai Mohanlal Desai – Minister of Finance, Energy and Petrochemicals, Gujarat in Dandi on 15 Jan 2023.
A team of 25 NCC cadets will carry a pot of salt made at National Salt Satyagraha Memorial (NSSM), Dandi and a CD containing a software programme developed by Bhaskaracharya National Institute for Space Applications and Geo-informatics (BISAG) to symbolize India’s journey from the ‘extractors of salt’ to the ‘makers of software’. These tokens will be handed over to the Honourable Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi during the Prime Minister’s NCC Day Rally to be held in Delhi on 28 Jan 2023.
To commemorate this occasion, Jawa-Yezdi Motorcycles has presented two Jawa motorcycles, one each in limited edition Khaki and Grey to the NCC Directorate. The Jawa Khaki was introduced in the model’s line-up to honour the bravery and sacrifices of Armed Forces Personnel. Apart from these, an assortment of 25 Jawa-Yezdi Motorcycles will be ridden by the cadets through their journey.
The rally will see riders traverse cities like Vadodara, Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Udaipur, Ajmer, Jaipur and Alwar before concluding the ride in New Delhi. Celebrations are planned across Jawa Yezdi dealerships across these cities where the riders will be taking pitstops and will be recognised for taking part in this rally.
This partnership falls under Jawa Yezdi Motorcycles’ #ForeverHeroes initiative, conceived to inculcate a sense of gratitude towards the Armed Forces. Right from its early phase, the company has been developing a culture of values to appreciate their efforts and sacrifice that helps keep the country safe, peaceful & prosperous. In 2019, the company formally announced this initiative to contribute to the cause of welfare of Armed Forces personnel and their next of kin. The company, since then, has continued its support through contributions and support in rides marking historic and victorious milestones like Kargil Vijay Diwas, Swarnim Vijay Varsh and 75 years of Independence.
In its day-to-day functioning, the company also looks forward to facilitating interactions of its employees & customers through its network and other suitable occasions with the armed forces personnel to help build regard & respect for their contribution to the country.
