Toyota gets all-clear to supply Innova to govt

New Delhi: Car manufacturer Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd (TKM) on Monday said it has received an approval for supplying its multi-utility vehicle Innova to the government.

“The government of India has accorded the Directorate General of Supplies and Disposals (DGS&D) rate contract for the Toyota Innova 2.5E seven- and eight-seater diesel versions," Toyota Kirloskar said.

DGS&D is the Central purchase and quality assurance organization under the department of supply of the ministry of commerce. For bulk purchases of the government departments, DGS&D approval is a mandatory requirement.

“With the DGS&D rate contract effective from April, the Toyota Innova can now be supplied to all government agencies at the Union and state levels at the government approved rate," the firm said.

Innova is the company’s largest selling vehicle in India with 6,235 units sold in March.

TKM is a joint venture between Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp. and the Kirloskar Group.
