In order to increase the awareness of preserving mangroves, lakes and other environmental issues linked with pollution from vehicles, NMEPS organized “No Motor Vehicle Rally” on October 2nd, 2012 in partnership with Navi Mumbai Traffic Police. The rally was flagged off by Mr. Vijay Patil IPS, DCP Traffic. More than 400 students of various schools and nature loving enthusiasts participated and carried placards, cycled, walked and skated along the mangroves and lakes in Nerul. It created considerable enthusiasm among the participants who also included the nearby societies. All the participants were given a certificate of participation and they pledged that they will follow the traffic rules and preserve the environment by conserving fuel and selective use of the vehicles for short distances.
