Tata Safari was chosen to participate in the annual parade on CISF Raising Day. Five units of the seven-seater model were used to demonstrate different security drills performed by the CISF personnel.
Last month, Tata Motors launched the much-anticipated Tata Safari in the domestic market. Within the first month, it is reported that the new seven-seater SUV has met with good responses with over 1,700 units sold. Recently, the newly-launched model took the honour of joining the security demonstration for the 52nd CISF Raising Day parade.
The annual CISF Raising Day is meant to celebrate the establishment of the Central Industry Security Force. On March 10th every year, officials of the CISF hold a parade as a way to commemorate the devotion of the CISF personnel. On this year’s parade, five units of the Tata Safari were used by the CISF in their demonstration of various security drills in which the force shows how they handle VIP security.
Tata Safari showed up in the box formation led by the pilot car. The VIP car ran between two escort cars and was followed by a spare car, offering all-around protection and surveillance for the VIP car. In the next drills, the Tata Safari VIP was escorted by security agents who got off from the moving escort cars. When reaching the destination, before the VIP stepped off the car, the security agents checked and accessed the situation. The VIP continued to be accompanied by security personnel.

Following the VIP escort, the Tata Safari continued to perform the next drill that demonstrated how the force would react to a shooter. As soon as the shooter appearred, the VIP was immediately covered to evacuate back to the car. The car security personnel provided protection and got back to the escort cars and fleeing away from the place. The demonstration showed how quickly and effectively the security agents of CVISF can handle this urgent situation.
That is not the end yet. The next demonstration shows how the security agents respond in case of a bomb attack while the cars are moving on the road. At the first sight of the bomb attack, the cars are stopped imidiately and after a quick checking, the driver made a J-turn and withdrawn. Everything happened quickly within seconds, showing how professional the CISF is and how the Tata Safari can perform smoothly in these situations.
