Tata Motors has launched its second Registered Vehicle Scrapping Facility in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, as part of its plan to establish a dozen facilities across India. The facility, operated by Tata Motors’ partner Empreo Premium, can scrap over 25,000 vehicles annually and has the capacity to disassemble 10,000 vehicles per year. The move aims to promote eco-friendly vehicle scrapping, reduce the environmental impact of the transportation sector, and generate employment opportunities while encouraging the adoption of cleaner transportation modes.
The Indian government estimates that there are millions of old vehicles in the country, and the vehicle scrappage ecosystem is expected to attract significant investments and create around 35,000 jobs. The government’s scrappage policy offers incentives, including discounts on new vehicle purchases and road tax reductions, to encourage vehicle owners to participate in the program. Other automotive companies, such as Mahindra and Maruti Suzuki Toyotsu, are also actively running scrapping facilities in India.
