The government has pulled up Tata Motors for delaying the delivery of electric buses to the transport departments of six cities and warned that the company could be blacklisted for future contracts, officials aware of development said.
The Mumbai-based automaker had won orders to supply 40 electric buses each to Jaipur, Indore, Lucknow, Kolkata, Jammu and Guwahati in March last year. Tata Motors has delayed deliveries in all these cities, officials confirmed to ET.
BYD, China’s largest electric vehicle maker, in a joint venture with Goldstone (now Olectra), bagged tenders to supply three of the 10 cities, while Ashok Leyland won the order for Ahmedabad.
Olectra said it had supplied 40 of the 100 buses in Hyderabad for which it had received clearances, although its contracts in Bengaluru and Mumbai were delayed by legal hurdles. Read More
