Chennai, Jun 6: Hinduja Group flagship company Ashok Leyland has bagged the first overseas order worth $6 million for its vestibule buses from Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC).



The Chennai-headquartered company, in a statement, said the company bagged the order for 50 units valued at $six million under the Indian Line of Credit scheme offered by the Government of Bangladesh.

An agreement to this effect was signed between BRTC and Ashok Leyland recently.

"We were the first to introduce vestibule buses in India and now are excited about introducing this vehicle in Bangladesh..", Ashok Leyland Managing Director Vinod K Dasari said.

Ashok Leyland has so far exported 9,500 vehicles across various ranges to Bangladesh, it said.

In 2011, Ashok Leyland had bagged its first single largest order for 290 double-decker buses valued at $23.3 million from Bangladesh, the statement added.
