Chennai:  Ashok Leyland has bagged an order worth around USD 23.3 million for 290 fully-built Double Decker Buses from Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC). This is the Company’s largest single order for Double Decker Buses from Bangladesh.  

In 2010-2011, Ashok Leyland's exports grew by 72% to touch 10,306 nos. in which Bangladesh had a significant contribution. Over the years, more than 9,500 vehicles (of different models) have been exported through Ashok Leyland's sole dealer of over two decades, Ifad Autos Ltd.

"Bangladesh has always remained a very important market for us. Our continued focus on this robustly growing market has helped us establish ourselves today as the second largest brand in that country’s commercial vehicle market. We will continue to maintain this focus in the coming years," said Vinod K Dasari, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland.

An agreement for the 290 fully-built Double Decker Buses was signed by the Chairman of BRTC and Antony Lobo, Special Director-International Operations, Ashok Leyland at Dhaka last week.
