Chitkara University, Punjab presented Solar Umbrella for Police Checkpost

Chitkara University NewGen IEDC

Police officials performing their duty in the outdoor conditions on the checkpost face adverse weather conditions in the absence of canopies in some of the locations. Also, the lack of access to electric power inhibits them to charge their mobile phones and heat the water in extreme winter conditions. Also, the summers pose challenges such as lack of shadow from sun-heat and reduced air circulation. Chitkara University NewGen IEDC has designed and developed an efficient Solar Powered Umbrella to address the challenges with an integrated approach. The representatives of Chitkara University presented the Solar Umbrella to the office of Deputy Commissioner Patiala and offered to install 10 more units for police officials performing duty outdoors. Chitkara University NewGen IEDC has successfully completed a number of projects relevant to societal impact. To know more about Chitkara University NewGen IEDC, visit
