Earlier in August, Tata Motors also secured an order for 921 electric buses from Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC). Under the larger tender from Convergence Energy Services Limited (CESL), Tata Motors will supply, operate and maintain 12-metre electric buses under the contract for a period of 12 years.

Even before that, Tata Motors had already received orders for 1,500 electric buses from Delhi Transport Corporation and 1,180 electric buses from West Bengal Transport Corporation in the past 30 days.

The project involved the procurement of four categories of e-buses, including 12 meters of low floor AC, 12 meters of standard floor non-AC, 9 meters of standard floor AC and 9 meters of standard floor non-AC buses. CESL will oversee the project to ensure seamless implementation as part of the program management agreement with TML.
