Tata Motors has opened its first registered vehicle scrapping facility in Jaipur, Rajasthan and it was inaugurated by Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways. The facility is called Re.Wi.Re (Recycle with Respect) and has the capacity to scrap 15,000 end-of-life vehicles per year.
The facility is developed and operated by Ganganagar Vaahan Udyog Pvt. Ltd., a partner of Tata Motors, that uses eco-friendly methods to scrap end-of-life passenger and commercial vehicles of all brands. As of now, Tata only has one of these facilities in the country.
The Re.Wi.Re facility is completely digitised and has multiple dismantling stations for different parts of a vehicle like tyres, liquids, oils, and batteries, and has been built to be inline with the Vehicle Scrappage Policy that was introduced by the Union government to phase out unfit and polluting vehicles.
