Ashok Ley­land, flag­ship of the Hin­duja Group, and In­dia’s largest Bus man­u­fac­turer, has con­firmed that it bagged or­ders from IRT (In­sti­tute of Road Trans­port, Chen­nai), UPSRTC (Ut­tar Pradesh State Road­ways Trans­port Corporation) and CTU (Chandi­garh Trans­port Un­der­tak­ing) for 2580 buses. These or­ders are among the largest from STUs for a sin­gle OEM. All these buses can be de­liv­ered be­fore March 2019. Vinod K Dasari, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Ashok Ley­land, said, “We are very happy to re­ceive the con­fir­ma­tion of these or­ders from State Trans­port Un­der­tak­ings. Our abil­ity to bring value, com­bined with our su­pe­rior tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tion, will help us main­tain our lead­er­ship po­si­tion in buses in In­dia.”

San­jay Saraswat, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent, Global Buses, Ashok Ley­land, said. “Our buses are durable, ro­bust and em­ploy the lat­est in tech­nol­ogy. The cost of own­er­ship and the prod­uct ex­pe­ri­ence which we can de­liver is the best in the in­dus­try. Our in-depth un­der­stand­ing of what works for our mar­kets and cus­tomers is what dif­fer­en­ti­ates us and has helped us win these or­ders.”

Ashok Ley­land is the 4th largest man­u­fac­turer of buses in the world and the largest in In­dia. These or­ders would fur­ther con­sol­i­date its lead­er­ship po­si­tion.
