Tata Motors and Maharashtra government has joined hands to support setting up of a registered vehicle scrapping facility (RVSF) in the state, the company said on Friday.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by the auto major and the state government to help set up the scrappage centre with a recycling capacity of up to 35,000 vehicles a year for end-of-life passenger and commercial vehicles.

The state industries, energy and labour department will support in facilitating the necessary approvals as per the rules and regulations for setting up of the facility, the company said.

"Besides the well-known benefits that appropriate vehicle scrapping offers – boosting the setup of a circular economy, this initiative will also help in reiterating our commitment to strengthen our leadership in the sustainable mobility space," Tata Motors Executive Director Girish Wagh said in a statement.

"We are proud to partner with the policymakers on this initiative of setting up scrapping facilities across the country. It is the beginning of a new chapter and a step in the right direction for India's transportation sector," he added.

Tata Motors had earlier signed an MoU with the Gujarat government for setting up a scrapping facility in Ahmedabad.
