Tata Motors has joined hands with the Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. (IOCL) to introduce an industry-first driver welfare initiative ‘Saarthi Aaram Kendra’ in the country. This first-of-its-kind programme is aimed towards the betterment of the driver community in India. Under this initiative, Tata will setup pit stops for drivers to take rest on high traffic National Highways, thereby ensuring their physical and mental well-being. The first ‘Saarthi Aaram Kendra’ was inaugurated at Bawal on NH8, which is India’s busiest National highway.

In addition, these will also provide truck related services from the vehicle service workshop available within the premises. Besides this welfare initiative, the company has also launched a ‘Tata Motors Samarth’ which will provide the truck owners with accidental insurance, hospitalization cover, financial counselling and educational assistance packages for their children.
