Inaugurating Tata Motor’s first registered vehicle scrapping facility, Re.Wi.Re, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said that the National Vehicle Scrapping Policy will promote circular economy by creating an ecosystem for phasing out of obsolete and polluting vehicles. It was implemented with the goal of reducing carbon footprint in the country by replacing them with greener and more fuel efficient vehicles. I congratulate Tata Motors for setting up a quality facility at global standards. We are working towards establishing India as a vehicle scrapping hub for the entire South Asian region and for this purpose we need more such state-of-the-art scrapping and recycling units in India.
