Tata Motors has delivered 5 Mine Protected Vehicles (MPV) to the Jharkhand Police force, to bolster security preparedness. For Tata Motors, this order comes close on the heels of another prestigious order already received from the Maharashtra State Police to supply 32 MPV’s, which the company has executed.
The vehicles were handed over to Mr. Gaurishankar Rath, Director General, Jharkhand Police, in the presence of Mr. Bibhudi Bushan Pradhan, Additional Director General, Jharkhand Police, Mr. Rajkumar K Mallick, Inspector General of Jharkhand Police (Modernization and Provision) and Mr. Dinesh Parikh – Managing Director JMA Stores and Mr. Sanjeev Shrivastava, Head Government Sales JMA Stores, at the Jharkhand Police Headquarters in Ranchi, by Mr. Sandeep Saigal – Head, Defence Sales, Tata Motors.
The Tata MPV is based on modular flexibility, and integrates V-shaped hull blast protection technology, ideally suited for security operations. The Tata MPV will protect its occupants from threats like ambushes and sudden violent attacks, powerful explosive mines and heavy gunfire. The vehicle has high levels of mobility with combat survivability.
Tata Motors has deployed its dealer/service network in Jharkhand, in far flung inaccessible areas, catering to the requirements of the Tata MPV, ensuring easy availability of spare parts and also providing additional benefits of AMC (Annual Maintenance Packages). The Tata Motors Service network ensures maximum operational readiness & lower life-cycle maintenance cost to its defence vehicles across the country.
The company also has the ability to mobilise adequate manufacturing capacity for defence requirements, along with dedicated exclusive infrastructure, manufacturing facilities and trained manpower, to ensure faster delivery of its defence vehicles.
