Tata Swach's mobile vans create awareness about safe drinking water prior to the monsoon season

Mumbai: Tata Chemicals continues to accomplish its dream of creating a healthy nation post winning the Product of the Year award in the water purifier category; Tata Swach mobile vans are visiting various cities to create awareness about safe and healthy drinking water.

To ensure that families are educated about the ill-effects of consuming unfiltered water, the Tata Swach team is organising a showcase-on-wheels campaign across cities such as Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Lucknow and Nagpur. The team reaches out to the masses, educating them on waterborne diseases and the importance of purified drinking water through interesting games. The Tata Swach mobile van will visit Mumbai this month.

Sabaleel Nandy, head, water purifier business, Tata Chemicals, said, “Waterborne diseases are the greatest threat to the country’s health and it is of national importance that people are educated about the same. Tata Swach is happy to visit multiple cities across the country to connect with consumers and provide affordable access to safe drinking water.”

In India, diseases like diarrhea, jaundice, typhoid, cholera, polio and gastroenteritis are spread through contaminated water. They cause more than 1.5 times the number of deaths caused by AIDS and double the number of deaths caused by road accidents. Tata Swach, a unique and innovative water purifier, provides safe drinking water at a market benchmark of Rs30 per month for a family of five.

The campaign provides the public with a better understanding of healthy living. Tata Swach endeavours to provide affordable access to purified drinking water to Indian households and welcomes everyone to join it in fulfilling the pledge of building a healthy nation.
