Tata Launches Its First Vehicle Scrapping Facility Called Re.Wi.Re
Tata Motors has opened its first vehicle scrapping facility in India in Jaipur, called Re.Wi.Re., short for “Recycle With Respect.” Inaugurated by Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, the scrapping centre can recycle up to 15,000 end-of-life (EOL) vehicles each year.
This state of art scrapping facility is developed and operated by Tata Motors’ partner Ganganagar Vaahan Udyog Pvt. Ltd. to scrap end-of-life passenger and commercial vehicles of all brands. It is fully digitalised for hassle-free, paperless operations and has dedicated stations for the safe dismantling of components such as tyres, batteries, fuel, oils, liquids and gases. The vehicles go through stringent documentation and dismantling process, curated individually for passenger and commercial vehicle requirements.
Commenting on the inauguration of Tata Motors’ maiden Re.Wi.Re RVSF, Hon’ble Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Government of India, Shri Nitin Gadkari said, “The National Vehicle Scrappage Policy was introduced with the aim to promote circular economy by creating an ecosystem for phasing out unfit and polluting vehicles and to achieve a lower carbon footprint in the country by replacing them with greener and more fuel efficient vehicles. I congratulate Tata Motors for setting-up this quality facility that is at par with global standards. We are working towards positioning India as a vehicle scrapping hub for the entire South Asian region and need more such state-of-the-art scrapping and recycling units in India.”
