Tata Motors Limited of India has delivered 21 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) -powered Tata Magic passenger vehicles in Indore, funded under Mukhyamantri Yuva Swarojgar Yojna (MMYSY), a financial assistance scheme to help people get loans from banks to setup their own small business in the state of Madhya Pradesh, in central India.
The scheme is intended to facilitate economical and safe public transportation to city residents and newly included villages adjoining Indore city.
Tata Magic is a small passenger commercial vehicle designed for last mile public transportation to the urban and rural areas, in a segment dominated by three-wheel passenger carriers. Introduced in June 2007 as the country’s first small commercial four-wheeler the Tata Magic has found support from various government stakeholders – district authorities’ / transport authorities, including the Ministry of Urban Development, with the idea of replacing old three wheelers and uplifting the face of last mile public transport in urban & rural markets in India.
