College of Military Engineering, in keeping with the ethos of promoting a clean environment has taken the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan to a new level and is a role model for the Pune City. Two days in a week are observed as dry days wherein no vehicles are used within the premises of CME and all residents are encouraged to use bicycles instead. CME has also proposed a pipeline from Kasarwadi Sewage Treatment Plant to the International standard Rowing Channel in CME to facilitate disposal of treated water which is otherwise getting wasted. CME has also undertaken the endeavour to expose the young probationers of Maharashtra State Civil Services to the military way of life with the view to instil the right attitudes and values. We believe that it will go a long way in fostering better civil military coordination in the national interest.
