PANAJI: Tata Motors will deliver 300 all terrain vehicles (ATVs) to the armed forces per quarter, a senior company official said today. "We delivered 39 ATVs in December last year and another

100 in March. We will now increase the delivery rate to 300 ATVs per quarter and we are confident of meeting the schedule," said Veron S Noronha, Vice-President (Defence and Government Business) Tata Motors, told PTI.

He, however, did not specify how many such vehicles are to be delivered to the armed forces. Tata Motors has order backlogs worth Rs 1,400 crore related to supply of logistic vehicles, light armed vehicles, ATVs and 6 by 6 trucks to the security forces, he said.

The private company, which makes an array of vehicles, ranging from passengers cars to ATVs, presented its products and technology at the just concluded 'Defence Expo 2016' here. The expo was a very good opportunity for Tata Motors to meet foreign entities and discuss prospective technical collaborations, he said.

Talking about Make In India initiative, Noronha said the manufacturing project will definitely help companies like Tata Motors as funding by the government for research and development has become more transparent.

"Exchange rate variation and other items have been specifically introduced (under the project) which put companies like Tata Motors on level playing field." DRDO can now become production partner in initial stages of product development, Noronha added.
