About Automobile Association of Upper India :
AAUI is a non profitable non Government Organisation (NGO) engaged in providing allied services to their members and also imparting awareness and education in road safety related areas.
The Association is well patronised by high officials of the Government, members of the public and the business corporate. Late Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the First President of the Republic of India honored the Association by accepting to become its first Patron-in-Chief in September 1950.
Thereafter the successive Presidents of India have been bestowing this honor on the AAUI. Besides this, the Lt-Governors of Delhi and the Chiefs of the three Services have been the patrons of the Association as a matter of tradition. The Association was founded on 20th September, 1950.
AAUI is rendering useful services to the public and the Transport Department, Police and Indian Customs. Its performance can be well judged from the fact that the Association had collected and deposited with the Transport Authority a sum of Rs.80 lakh (approx.) on account of collection of one time road tax, and fees introduced by the City Government during 1986-87. It rendered a great help to the motorists who could pay the tax almost at their door-step.
AAUI is making all out efforts to expand its membership base . The AAUI generally has a say in the matters related with Driving, Road Safety, Traffic Discipline and to help domestic and foreign tourists. Efforts are being made to train a large number of motorists in First Aid and AAUI Honorary Roaming Ambassadors have also been involved to observe road infrastructure and traffic related problems. They are supposed to communicate the same to AAUI which disseminates the community feedback to the concerned authorities for redressal.
The AAUI is a significant contributor to the growth of land related foreign tourism. The custom authorities at more than 130 boarders and checkposts allow duty-free passage to the vehicles brought by foreign tourists into India on the strength of carnet-de-passage (CPD) to which the Federation of Indian Automobile Associations (FIAA) with AAUI and other regional associations is the counter-guarantor. AAUI has pioneered a world class driving training school with driving simulators equipped with Skoda Technology. More than 1,50,000 drivers have benefited in developing and evaluation of their driving skills.
