Hinduja group flagship Ashok Leyland Friday said it has bagged an order for 200 buses in Bangladesh. The order is for single-decker AC buses which includes intercity AC buses as well as city AC buses, Ashok Leyland said in a statement.
“These completely built-up (CBU) units for BRTC (Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation) will be procured against a tender under Indian line of credit,” it added.
