Cummins India drives BS-VI emission norm awareness with innovative training vans, empowering technicians, drivers, and stakeholders across the automotive industry.
Cummins India will flag-off of the BSVI OBD II training vans. The vans will offer hands-on education and understanding of BSVI OBD II technology to mechanics, technicians, vehicle body fabricators, truck drivers, and customers across OEM dealerships and authorized workshops. The vans were flagged off from the Cummins India Office campus by Mr. Rajendra Petkar, President and Chief Technology Officer, Tata Motors, Ms. Anjali Pandey, Chief Operating Officer, Cummins India, and Mr. Nitin Jirafe, Vice President, Engine Business, Cummins India along with leadership teams of Tata Motors and Cummins.
The training vans are equipped with Cummins BSVI engines (B5.6 and B6.7), cut sections of engine parts, a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, and a single-module after-treatment system. This provides an immersive experience for participants, who can see and touch the actual engines and learn about their components and operation. The vans also have LCD TVs that play training videos and information on Cummins BS-VI engines in rich audio-visual format.
In addition to serving as mobile classrooms, the vans also showcase the benefits of Cummins engines, after-treatment systems, and an extensive range of offerings from Cummins for the on-highway aftermarket, such as Genuine Cummins parts, Saathi mobile app for truck drivers, Components Care Centers (CCC), and Vishwasji (a visual rendition of an expert embodying trust, experience, innovation, and expertise that resides in each one of the aftermarket sales and service members of Cummins India)
Speaking at the launch Nitin Jirafe, Vice President, Engine Business, Cummins India said, “At Cummins, it is our constant endeavor to create and deliver world-class customer experiences that demonstrate our vision of innovating for our customers to power their success. Currently, there are more than 2.4 Lakh Cummins BSVI-powered vehicles plying on Indian roads. These BSVI OBD II emission-compliant engines further reinforce our commitment toward powering a cleaner India.”
Mohan Ramachandran, Commercial Director, Engine Business and Aftermarket, Cummins India further added, “The training vans offer multiple benefits – educating the truck drivers about the engine, which helps improve fuel efficiency through better drivability; reducing the carbon footprint of the CVs in use; and last- mile reach, which helps deepen our connect with the stakeholders.”
With the BSVI OBD II Training Vans, Cummins India continues to empower individuals and strengthen the automotive ecosystem by equipping them with the knowledge and expertise needed to navigate the cutting-edge BS-VI technology era.
Since the launch of the first mobile training fleet in November 2019, the vans have successfully conducted cumulatively over 1300 sessions in 1640 cities, and have trained more than 20,000 technicians, vehicle body fabricators, and drivers, contributing to their knowledge and skill enhancement.
