Tata Motors has unveiled its first registered vehicle scrapping facility in India – Re.Wi.Re or Recycle with Respect in Jaipur, Rajasthan. It has a capacity of scrapping 15,000 vehicles each year.

The facility has been developed and operated by Tata Motors’ partner Ganganagar Vaahan Udyog Pvt. Ltd. to scrap end-of-life passenger and commercial vehicles of all brands, the company said in a statement.

While inaugurating the facility, Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari said there is a need for more such state-of-the-art scrapping and recycling units in India.

According to Tata Motors, the Re.Wi.Re facility is totally digital and paperless, with specific stations for the safe breakdown of components such as tyres, batteries, gasoline, oils, liquids, and gases. The vehicles are subjected to a thorough documentation and disassembly process prior to scrapping, as per the SOP for passenger and commercial vehicles.
