Hinduja Group flagship company Ashok Leyland has won an order for 50 vestibule buses from the Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) under the Indian Line of Credit (LoC) scheme offered for improvement of urban transportation in that country. The order, worth around $6 million (Rs 33 crore), is the company’s first for such buses from an overseas market.

An agreement to this effect was signed by the Chairman of BRTC and Antony Lobo, Special Director-International Operations, Ashok Leyland was signed at Dhaka.

 

 

Vinod K Dasari, managing director, Ashok Leyland, said, “This represents an important step towards achieving our Vision to be globally among the top-10 truck and top-5 bus manufacturers. We were the first to introduce vestibule buses in India and now are excited

about introducing this vehicle in Bangladesh and help take urban transportation there to a new level in partnership with BRTC, with whom we share a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”
