This year’s intense monsoon led to floods in many states, resulting in many vehicles and their customers getting stranded in water-logged areas. Recently, Bajaj announced a service campaign for its flood-affected customers and now TVS has also joined the bandwagon. The Hosur-based manufacturer has announced a service campaign for flood-affected customers in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and the states of North East India from August 26 to September 15.

Heavy rains across the country have also resulted in water entering into the engine compartment, effectively rendering the two-wheeler immobile. To help customers in easy transportation of the flood-affected two-wheeler, TVS is also offering towing services for its customers within a radius of 20km. This coupled with the reasonably wide service network should make the whole servicing process a lot more convenient. Here’s the brand’s official statement regarding the initiative:
